Ad Trap and blocking in the router

Post by simn » Sat Dec 29, 2012 4:38 pm

I've read about a device being developed that blocks unwanted stuff "as it comes in the building".. Therefore, allowing all devices on the LAN to connect Ad free.. This includes tablets and mobiles.. Although I've paid for the Adblock browser on my iPad and hope it develops - it feels like an early release to me.. and it offers little user control

So, is it possible to filter 'in the modem' using Easy List?
I have access to the filter and domain filter dialogs through the web interface [img]file:///Users/info/Desktop/Netgear_Filtering.png[/img]

You cannot attach an image here from your hard drive. Upload it to e.g. http://imgur.com/ and post its link here.

You can't exactly do that with EasyList, but a combination of pixelserv and a router-based HOSTS file and/or dnsmasq setup can do the trick: https://code.google.com/p/jansal/wiki/H ... mendations
