    I set my DNS to 081.004.127.020 and 168.235.092.108 to block automatic firmware updates, and this also blocked my wii u from updating games. Is there a way around this? It hasn't completely blocked me from going online, I can still see miiverse posts and stuff on the weird circle of games full of mii characters on the tv screen.

    Is there an alternative to changing my DNS settings?

    Is there another set of addresses that doesn't block game updates?

    Thanks in advance. =)

    Try using NNU-Patcher. If that fails, just disable your DNS temporarily, update then set your DNS again.

    NNU Patcher is what ctr-httpwn is for 3DS, right?

    Yes and no; while their main design goal was "go on eShop without (fully) updating",

    httpwn is mainly used nowadays for multiplayer (since on 3DS the friends driver version is checked, although it's generally possible to update just that title) and the monster hunter exploit, while nnupatcher is mostly used to temporarily disable custom DNS (as the current version, and likely but not provably the final one, is the most exploited)
