    I am on FW 5.5.1 and have sites/IPs blocked through my Modem/Router combo. Anyway, is it still recommended to keep blocks enabled? When enabled, I have noticed it has been interfering with sites like IGN and Steam Store. Thoughts and help greatly appreciated :)

    It's always recommended to keep updates blocked because you never know if Nintendo will drop a surprise Wii U update before the Switch, maybe even after but probably not.

    Try using TubeHax DNS (that still works, right?) to block updates on your Wii U only if the way you're doing it interferes with browsing.

    There's no way it should be interfering with IGN or Steam. I have blocks enabled in my router and I have no issues accessing Steam, I don't go to IGN very often but it does work fine.
