    The title says it all. I read on the forums awhile back that peoples wii u were updating when they're on the internet without their permission just wanted to know the best possible methods so it doesn't update. Thanks in advance.

    you could also just disconnect your wii u from the internet. that's what i did. then again, you probably have games you want to play, don't you?

    Nobody mentioned what's reliable and easy. Tubehax DNS. Literally just change your DNS to 107.211.140.065 and never worry again.

    Does that apply to any internet connection, like say i am not at home and went to a book store with wifi, just use that same number for both primary and secondary dns and no worries?

    Correct, but it's been discussed and recommended to put Secondary to 0.0.0.0, in hopes that if Primary fails, the Secondary will disallow any internet use and prevent an update.

    I use my old router (FritzBox) as webserver to host the exploit.
    I made a special firmware for the router, which is called "freetz"
    and included the exploit htmlfiles to a new firmwareimage.

    I think this is a very safe solution,
    because the router has no internet connection.
    Its only purpose is hosting the htmlfiles and offer
    a wlan connection for the wiiu.

    sounds interesting, I've got an old fritzbox 7141. Do you know if it would work with it? Also is there a tutorial on how do do it, I checked the freetz webpage and it sounds very complicated.

    Is this what's recommended? Personally I just leave both with the Tubehax DNS.

    Also, every time I'm on the go (more with the 3DS than the Wii U, but whatever) I just change manually change the wifi name and security, but I leave the DNS. I also, on my 3ds at least, put random garbage info in both the second and third wifi slots so that I don't accidentally connect to the wifi at McDonalds or something and get the update nag.

    Yeah, tbh I'm not sure if there is a better way. It really depends on how the Wii U is coded to work. And I'm not going to be the one to test it out :P

    To think of it logically: if TubeHax DNS goes offline, the Primary DNS fails, right? So that's when the Secondary DNS is supposed to kick in.

    Option A: If it is also TubeHax DNS, its going to fail too. Then what? Is the Wii U coded to go to "Auto-Obtain" mode? If it is, you'd update.

    Option B: If the Secondary DNS is 0.0.0.0, it should just keep you from accessing the internet at all.

    i don;t understand these or how they are supposed to work can someone plea explain i get you can use old method of blocking the NUS in your router settings
    but this runs on a PC and a website so how does it or how can block the connection to NUS if the wii u is connecting from the wii u to the router?
    do you have to ake your wii u connect to your PC as an intermediary/proxy ?does this only work if the PC is on what exactly does it do?

    where the wind makes the curve
    I did the same thing on tplink 703n with OpenWrt.
    Which firmware you used as a base?
    My problem is that this router has only 4mb memory and I don't know why but hosting the files using USB storage the exploit just freezes the screen.
