    my wii is a 3.3u w the gamma loader and I would like to use wifi still for some of my original stuff but I am worried that an update like the 3.4 menu will be forced and nullify all my work. An update attempt from a game doesn't worry me as much as a random one being pushed out when I am not around.

    So, is it possible to use wiiconnect24 but not catch any updates?

    Or is the answer to my question to just keep updating and using workarounds if I want to use wifi?

    I suppose I could leave off the gateway address and use the wii to dump discs but I still wanted to use some of the web enabled content.

    Are you sure? I always thought the Wii tried to update each time you set the Wifi up from scratch.

    I can't remember my wii wanting to update after setting wifi up, I remember it performing a connection test but not updating. You could have a point there. I can't remember the wifi settings but I suppose you could disable the wireless on your router/AP once the connection test is done. It can't update if theres no connection.

    But I think the TC is talking about general wifi usage/leaving it enabled when its in standby.

    After setting up the wireless connection the Wii will test the connection.
    If it the connection is working it will show a message:

    --8

    FW v3.4 enables background updating (you don't see it coming) if WiiConnect24 is on (or wifi/lan connection is available).

    Advise? Stay at (or downgrade to) FW v3.2
