    Just check to see if the connection test still passes. There are two server addresses that are uses for the test, and I can't find what they are at the moment. Just be sure that your not blocking it, or none of your online functions will work. Also you may not be able to play online if you block the whole domain.

    Sorry to bump an old topic, but when I try to block the addresses listed in my router the Wii's connection test still passes. I can change the mac address that is restricted to my PC's and it can't access the servers, but when I change it to the wii's address it still passes the connection test. This leads me to believe that the router answers the connection and then breaks it. Thus making the wii think the connection was a success, when in fact it was not. However, I haven't the courage to tell it to try to update; why tempt fate? I was just wondering if anyone has tried blocking these addresses with success? Success being: the wii unable to update but still have Internet functionality.

    the servers I have blocked are:
    nus.cdn.shop.wii.com
    nus.shop.wii.com
    rcw.wc24.wii.com

    I had blocked wii.com and nintendo.com. The other day I needed to update my IOS222 and did the v4 hermes thing and tried to do the online install. My screen (wii) kept showing a timeout from wii.com. I went into the router while this was going on and stopped blocking the domain. The IOS222 installer was able to finish the online install. I was really surprised that a hack was dialing into wii.com(!) I guess there are official files there that need to be accessed even while hacking(?)

    When you install cios online, the installer downloads the original ios files from Nintendo, patches them and installs them. This provides a legal way to distribute the cios.
