I think I have this working, but not sure. How are you guys verifying that it is actually blocking ads correctly?

detectadblock.com says I'm not blocking ads...

Do you see ads, and/or reduction in ads?

Hello All,

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.


Regards,

Jeff

I'm unable to update or install Steam Games after installing this script.

I've added both steamcontent.com and steampowered.com, but it still doesn't work.

I've connected my computer directly to my modem and it works just fine.

Is there a possibility that this hostfile is blocking Steam? because when plugged into the router i have to connect multiple times to get my account to login.
