    I have a 5.4.0 Wii u and a Linksys EA6100 router and the closest thing to blocking URLs is going in the parental controls on my router, selecting the wii u device, then I add these URL's to the list to block (from the definitive guide):

    • nus.c.shop.nintendowifi.net
    • nus.cdn.c.shop.nintendowifi.net
    • nus.cdn.shop.wii.com
    • nus.cdn.wup.shop.nintendo.net
    • nus.wup.shop.nintendo.net
    • c.shop.nintendowifi.net
    • cbvc.cdn.nintendo.net
    • cbvc.nintendo.net
    Testing any of these urls in the supplied http://www.kloth.net/services/nslookup.php (from my wii u browser) shows that these domains are in fact not being blocked. I have set up the TubeHax DNS prior to this. Am I doing something? Is there something additional I can do to block these domains?

    It's probably your ISP, some of them won't allow any other DNS other than the one they provide, but you said you blocked them in your router, so I don't see why it wouldn't work for you regardless.

    I was pretty worried when checking that site, but I don't think it works right, at least for this. I've had it tell me this stuff's not blocked when it absolutely is, and my Wii U won't update and it does get that red x or whatever it is when update blocking is working.

    I do have a different router than you, so I can't say if you've done it right, just that that kloth site seems off.

    I tried to filter the urls too, but I don't know if they are blocked, I use tubehax too which works fine. So idk.

    You can test them disabling tubehax and try to access the Eshop if they are blocked you will get an error , but I wouldn't recommend it because the next firmware update COULD be release later today.

    Another method it's to try to access to a Nintendo URL in your PC browser to see what happens (with me my modem told me that they're blocked) or use a 3ds without tubehax to check if it can access Eshop (mine doesn't and give an error something like 5002 couldn't connect to the server) , but with tubehax it should be enough:9
