    I am currently on 5.5.0 (Sadly the Wii U I bought came in this version), but since I heard there will possibly be a kernel exploit for 5.5.0 I wanted to have a way to block updates.

    The thing is I want to block updates without losing internet access. I also would like to use Youtube, so Tubehax DNS is not an option for now.

    So I tried blocking Nintendo domains on my TP-Link WR-841N router and, sadly, one of the Nintendo domain name exceed the size limit. F*ck you: nus.cdn.c.shop.nintendowifi.net

    I heard you can also use OpenDNS with parental control, but I heard this method is unsafe since if your IPS use dynamic IP or they decide to change your home IP for some reason you would be f*cked.

    So... anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

    Use the parental controls on your router to enter the keyword nus.cdn?

    The parental control on my router only has the option of setting allowed websites for children pc. There's no entry for disallowed or blocked websites :unsure:

    I've been using Opendns all along on a Dynamic IP on my wiiu, just need this>https://support.opendns.com/entries...ownload-an-OpenDNS-Dynamic-IP-updater-client-
    and this alongside to keep it in check if your ip does change>https://dnsomatic.com/
    make sure you check the box in the updater settings "send dns o matic updates" and it will always automatically update your ip whenever it changes :) Forgot you do need to setup opendns at first if you have not already done that>https://www.opendns.com/

    Thanks! It seems to be working. I guess I need my PC on at all times to make sure my IP gets updated. If I turn off Standby-Mode there's no risk of updating while my PC is off, right?

    I wish :grog:What mistake did I make here? lol. RodrigoDavy said "I want to block updates without losing internet access" and hashcheck1 was suggesting "simply dont connect to wifi" ... that wasn't a good suggestion :P
