    What is the best DNS to block WiiU Updates. I am currently using
    Primary:
    208.067.222.222
    Secondary:
    208.067.220.220

    Also is there a way in the meantime to not connect to any internet at all but to not delete the wifi settings?

    shouldn't you ask this in the Wii-U forum not the 3ds forum?

    The absolute best method is to set your DNS to your computer's IP address, i.e. something along the lines of 192.168.0.0

    No outside connection, no updates, no online-play, nothing.
    The only thing it would allow you to do is browse files on a local server if you decided to host your own.

    All you do is go into the Wii U connection settings, select your network, change the DNS to "Don't Auto Obtain" and change both the primary and secondary DNS to your router's IP. This is usually 192.168.0.0, but it's different per router. You can test to make sure that's the correct IP by entering it in your computer's browser first.

    Just don't rely entirely on it. It seems some games can reset the DNS to automatic.

    which is why its even better (and simple) to run your own DNS (and dhcp server) and have that return fake IPs. VERY VERY simple to do and no need to rely on tubehax or anyone else

    Unfortuntely not. All people have told is that they set up the DNS and spoofed the FW. Then after playing games they saw the update was downloaded and installation would begin.
