Introduction: Block Ads With Your Router by Using Ad-blocking DNS Servers

Ad blocking extensions are great for individual browsers but leave out other devices and applications. Set up a router-level DNS filter to block ads for every device on your home network.

By setting your router to block ads you can enjoy ad free browsing on:

  • Hulu
  • In-app mobile games and apps
  • iPad and tablet browsers

Step 1: The Setup

To do this, just access your router’s web interface — how you do this will depend on which router you have. If you’re not sure how to do this, you’ll probably want to glance at your router’s manual to see instructions and learn the default password you’ll need.

Once there, you’ll probably find a DNS option on one of the pages. Change this and the setting will affect your entire network. If you’re having trouble finding the option, search your router’s manual or perform a Google search for your model of router and “change DNS.”

Use the following DNS servers:



That's it! Now just connect any device you need ads blocked on to your router and enjoy the lack of ads.
