Block Ads With Your Netgear Router!





Introduction: Block Ads With Your Netgear Router!

Well first off, You need a netgear router.I don't know what other routers it works on but you can try it. My Router is a netgear WGT624 v3. There is a simple way to block ads. The page also loads faster too!

Step 1:

Simply type in

-A window should pop up. Enter your password
-In the left menu, click on block sites.
*Make sure you have the "Keyword blocking" set to always.

In the blocked sites window, type each one of these websites into the keyword box and click enter. Do them one at a time.

At the bottom of the window, click apply, then in the left window, click logout. Most of the ads are blocked now. The router can not block flash ads though... I am still trying to get it to block them.

Step 2: Block Future Ads.

Still see ads? Right click on it to make sure its not a flash ad. If it is, it will say things like zoom or rewind etc. If it isnt, it will say save image, copy image etc. If so, right click the ad and click on copy link location. Paste the link into the block site keywords like you did with that long list I gave you.

    This thread is still going so I feel ought to contribute.

    Ad Blocking through the router is good and does work without wasting resources and some DNS servers will filter for you BUT 'Simple DnsCrypt' not only blocks ads - with a block list - it comes with a Bonus Feature, it encrypts DNS requests.

    After setup Google 'rootcanary DNS Test' to see how you're doing.

    Try MVPS Hosts file as a template - there's no lag at all.

    Have a Happy 2018 Blocking New Year Guys!

    If you remove all the ads, there will be no more free internet contents. Please keep in mind that advertisements keeps the websites alive.

    Rather block ads by using Alternate DNS's DNS servers.

    It's much much better than blocking ads by getting a browser extension(s), here's why:

    - Extensions make browsers "fat" and resource hogs

    - Ad blocking extensions do the ad blocking on your computer/device meaning CPU and RAM heavy tasks (ad blocking) consume system resources

    - Ad blocking extensions are VERY high on CPU & RAM demands.

    - Ad block extensions have access to YOUR data & PRIVATE DATA on all your sites/windows/tabs.

    It's much better to block ads on server side meaning faster download speeds (ads already filtered out) and more responsive system (ad blocking done server side before internet traffic is pipelined to you).

    If you cannot change DNS addresses on your router, alternatively you can use Opera browser which has built-in ad blocking (server side). Opera also has built-in VPN.

    But if you can change DNS on u router then rather at looking Opera better is Vivaldi browser. Look it up it's AMAZING!

    * Both Opera and Vivaldi use Chromium/BLINK engine (same what Chrome uses), so one can use Chrome Web Store extensions on your Vivaldi! (or Opera :) )

    Set your router to use an adblocking dns. it filters a much larger list and updates automatically

    This is the one to use. It was wierd that my youtube browsing in chrome on windows xp no longer lags after using this dns on my router...

    I love this as this is a bit dated does anyone have an updated list? if so please share


    This will effectively remove a lot of the ads since Google is turning into Skynet and controlling everything.

    This is GREAT!
    Can you give me some more ad sites to add to the original list?
    Here's hoping and thanks again.
    Please keep up the good work.

    An easier way is to use firefox and install the Ad Block Plus plugin. It already has most advertising sites listed in it, plus it self updates and can block flash.

    Well the reason I posted this is for people who aren't comfortable downloading programs. I was just giving them an alternative.
