if I block nus.cdn.shop.wii.com, does that also block the Shop Channel, or any other Wii online services, like WiFi games?
shopping channel.. no i believe that is ccs.shop.wii.com
other wii services... havent tried any
wifi games.. COD5 and MK work fine so prob not
for those of you who dont know what akamai.net do... depending on where you live and/or who your ISP is the IP addresses for nus.cdn.shop.wii.com will be different so you must do this on your own (if you can only block ip address on your router)
START -> RUN -> CMD -> nslookup nus.cdn.shop.wii.com
also it may be a good idea to double check the ip addresses whenever you reboot your router as e.g. BT (my PoS ISP) have a nasty tendancy of changing your default gateway on your wan IP which means when the nus.cdn.shop.wii.com url gets to akamai you may be redirected to a different IP (as explained above)

Doesn't blocking nus.cdn.shop.wii.com then also prevent the cIOS installers from grabbing the needed CIOS if you want to use the option to get it via network?
