Adding WiiU IP Address to DMZ list

Hi all.

Mario Kart 8, for the WiiU, is having issues connecting to the internet. 


A common solution for this is to add the WiiU's IP adress into my routers DMZ list.

To do this, I go to

home > home network > devices > wii
From there, I click 'Assign the public IP address of a connection to a LAN device'

I click Edit next to Internet, select Wii under the devices drop-down menu and click Apply.

I click OK on the warning box.
This is where the problem occurs. I am then thrown back to the 'Assign the public IP address of a connection to a LAN device' page as if nothing was ever done - the Internet row still has 'Not assigned' under the Device heading instead of the Wii that I thought I just assigned.

I would apreciate any help towards this issue, and I am happy to supply more information if I was not clear enough.
Thank you in advance!
