Nintendo servers

I am very curious about something, on the wiibrew wiki first advice you get is: do not update. At the same time you do need/can use an internet connection for homebrew. Now I would like to add to the wiki some kind of explanation to how to have a working connection and at the same time make sure no updates will be installed.

One of the ways to do this is to block the nintendo update servers on your router. But I am not able to find the ip-addresses or names of these servers. Although I do see "that there is a list" mentioned. Does anyone have this information? Is it ok if I would add that to the wiki.

Maybe the same applies for the weather and news servers..might also be interesting to add...

try nus.shop.wii.com and nus.cdn.shop.wii.com
Or you could, you know, just not hit "OK" when it asks you to update.

Thank you for your reply...don't know what I did to deserve the cynicism because I did do a search (on this forum, the wiki and on google) before I posted my reply. And yes of course I could choose not to hit OK but I am not sure if my 5 and 7 year old would do the same. So I was looking for a more fool proof fix and also share that with other people. Furthermore I thought that as most technical detail is described on the wiki describing the update procedure (or at least start a page about it) might proof useful too. As there is little to no mention of that.

Your answer does raise a number of questions that I could ask you but, you know, somehow I don't feel like contributing anymore

I think you can use the Parental Controls to set a password for updating. Not totally sure, I don't have kids... =P

Nintendo really "Can't" Update your system! by Law - yes, but they dont have the code to do so ( from info in another post)

Im guessing only smaller data is transmitted, Miis\Messages\News\Weather\Etc.,
