I am attempting to add Ad blocking to my dd-wrt router. I currently have it configured to connect to my VPN provider using the OpenVPN client.
I see where some options need to be turned on that I have off for my OpenVPN configuration and I think enabling the DNS or DNSMasq (which is required for this?) may break the OpenVPN client. I saw another post where it appears you need to setup another DNS service to handle this in order to not break the OpenVPN?
Could someone please explain how this needs to be configured to work in conjunction with the OpenVPN client please. Thank you in advance for any help.
does actually this method block youtube ads like ublock origin addon does ??
None of the blockers running on routers (this ad-blocking script, Diversion on Asus-Merlin, Pi-Hole etc.) can block YouTube ads since both the video and the ad are served from the same domain and those scripts can't recognize which is which. You need to keep using a browser extension to be able to block YouTube video ads.
