    or does Gateway have a feature to avoid updates?

    Cheers

    I think it blocks update notifications in emuNAND. sysNAND is another matter though.

    If you leave it in sleep mode with wi-fi on, it can definitely download an update, maybe it blocks notifications, less likely.

    Gateway/emuNAND doesn't block update notifications.

    Source: my emuNAND that gets update notifications.

    Hm. I've had updates blocked in my router for so long that I must've forgotten how it works :P

    if you don't have sleep mode or wifi on (Duh, who would)
    actually sleep mode by itself isn't that back, but have wifi on with it at the same time, then yes, it's bad.

    but if you disable "spot pass auto download" then you won't get nags and such,
    plus having the wifi on for only the time limited to accessing gw menu for such stuff as hand backup or such and booting into emunand, and then turn it off you'll be update free :)

    and N won't auto update your 3ds/2ds without asking the end user first,
    it'll only update if "you" accept the update message Pressing A "yes",
    if not it won't forcefully update without you letting it to.

    Cool, so I guess my router is probably doing as it was told an blocking the 3DS from reaching Nintendo's update servers. Or I haven't left WiFi on for long enough to get one.

    If I get an update nag screen, how do I get rid of it?

    If it's on sysNAND, you can enter Recovery Mode by holding down A+L+R+Up while turning on your console. If it's on emuNAND, you can't enter recovery mode (to my knowledge), so you'd just have to ignore it.
