After some extensive traffic monitoring, it has been noticed that UDP port 9103 has been trying to make some (lots) of failed connections when using the Wii U. It has also been reported that unblocking that port (and forwarding to the Wii U) has increased menu load times SIGNIFICANTLY. While I haven't had the pleasure to test this out myself, I am going to fiddle around with it tonight (or tomorrow, or the day after, et cetera). The only difference for me, is that I do not use a "residential grade" router, I have a Juniper SSG5 with all traffic in and out allowed. I'll have to take a look at the logs and see if this traffic is timing out.Quote:

Take it for what you will. I am going to be doing to time tests, diving into my firewall logs, and looking at data gathered with Wireshark before I give this my "I'm a professional and you can trust me" seal of approval.Quote:
