    Title says it all folk! I know there is a option to avoid it. My Japanese skills just aren't that to good. I doubt it is a simple の. So some guidance would be nice!

    Not sure if anybody has a better way of doing it, but with mine I entered in a junk DNS address in the settings before connecting, so it would save the connection profile but fail the connection to the Nintendo servers. Just make sure to change the DNS settings back before trying the web browser or anything else. I was also worried about pressing the wrong button when connecting, so this was a quick way I found to do it. Best of luck :).

    I'll just enter the tube hax or google dns I guess then. So what happens if you click yes to the update It just says failed to connect?

    I would recommend using 127.0.0.1 if your going to give a bogus DNS server address. 127.0.0.1 is used for another purpose, so using it as a DNS server will prevent any connection.

    Alternatively an easier way to do this is just unplug the internet cord from the back of the router, your 3DS will still connect to the router (and save the connection) but obviously wont connect to the internet.

    EDIT: Just to clarify, you should not even get to the popup about an update, it should show a red X over the internet globe, and on the bottom screen say something like エラー and then some numbers.

    If you already got the update pop up before you changed the dns, make sure you clear it. Hold L+R+up+A at boot and press cancel (やめる).
