Finally solved my Wii-U eShop error issue!
We've been trying to purchase the Pikmin 3 DLC for the last week or so. Everytime we get through about half way through the eShop purchase, the eShop app gets an error code (useless!) and exits. Sometimes we get further than other times, and once it fails, it seems to fail faster. Using the Nintendo Wii-U eShop seems to be a common problem found on the Nintendo forums.

It didn't seem to matter what time of day either. So today I was looking at my firewall logs and noticed: [4582372.494624] iptables drop ratelimit: IN=eth0 OUT= MAC=... SRC=220.127.116.11 DST=... LEN=93 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x20 TTL=59 ID=27348 DF PROTO=TCP SPT=443 DPT=4040 WINDOW=18666 RES=0x00 ACK PSH URGP=0 A lot of those. That's weird. That IP is an akamai address. And I seem to get a lot from them from akamai's port 443 to a random port on
