recently I bought a Netgear R7000 Router. I flashed the latest Firmware (dd-wrt.v24-K3_AC_ARM_STD.bin) and made a basic setup.
What i want to achieve:
- global Adblocker: Usually, I use ublock origin on my PCs. Instead of installing adblockers on all devices, i would like to use a global adblocker inside the router. I tried the built in Privoxy with automatic settings, but it didn't block ads on my phone. I also tried the approach on https://wiki.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Ad_blocking , but it didn't work neither.
- VLAN with VPN with Killswitch: I want to have on wlan with enabled VPN to use Netflix. I found a way to use openVPN only for specific VLANs https://medium.com/@libertylocked/dd-wrt-tricks-dedicated-wireless-virtual-access-point-for-openvpn-the-easy-way-6399fca14916 . However, when I use Netflix, it blocks the content. I'm using NordVPN and followed this guide to install the VPN on my router https://nordvpn.com/de/tutorials/dd-wrt/openvpn-gui/
However, if I enable the Killswitch script, I dont't get internet access on my non VPN WLAN.
- optional: I want to use another VPN setting for my guest Wlan. Is this possible?
