    Lightbulb Block WII Updates in Router?

    Does anyone know the adresses that the wii uses for upgrading the firmware?
    I wan't to block these in my router, without losing all other Wii connectivity (Online gaming/shop etc.).

    Are these adresses different per region (USA/EUR OR JAP)??

    Excellent idea! I don't know the ip's off hand but it's my understanding that the IOS downgraders use the official Nintendo servers to downgrade. Clear your routers log files, then do a downgrade and check the ip's. I would assume they use round robin or some other load balancing scheme so it might be nessasarry to block the entire subnet.

    The same test could be performed for the wii channels. Let's hope they are on different servers. Also, watch for the port number they both use. If they are different then blocking that port might be the solution.

    After digging some more on the internet i found the following adresses:

    nus.cdn.shop.wii.com
    nus.shop.wii.com

    Read the topic at Wii 3.4U and Auto-Update Soultuion - GBAtemp.net

    Could anyone confirm this or have other suggestions/experiences?
