    Somwhere you can never find.
    I am currently using ryans dns (205.166.076.187) to block updates while im in 5.5.1. I was trying to connect to play splatoon but it apparently does not connect to the internet. when I opt out to a regular connection it works. I want to know if this is happening to other people before I return to tubehax dns because I don't want to block youtube because my brother uses it.

    If I were you, avoid DNS tricks, and set your router URL filtering, if you have this feature, that is.

    Would these be the URLs I need to block?
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/wii-u-homebrew-preparation.385895/

    The thread suggests using OpenDNS, which is why I want to make sure these would work on a router. Thanks!

    Edit: I'd assume these would still let me play online? (It states it should, when using OpenDNS that is.)

    These URLs are correct.

    OPENDNS has been a known bitch to set up, and people got updated even with it enabled. Be very cautious.

    Alright thanks. Yeah, I'll just block them through my router, and not openDNS.

    Good move. Router setting never failed on me, on 3 different models.

    But not everyone has router blocking access.
