I don't realy want to use the pi hole. Plus the router is good engoh to the job. I know the pi hole is realy good. just means I need to go out buy one and plus more cables. I like my set up to be clean.

Aslo I not sure 3m ethernet cable (POE) - cat6 can take the power of the router and the pi same time. I would plug the pi in the router USB port.

Do my router have JFFS Support? I cant seem to get it to work.

Tried this no luck

The steps to enable JFFS through the router web page are very specific. To avoid having to reset and reprogram your router, it's smart to make a backup here of your settings. If you follow these steps exactly, it should not lock up.

On the router web page click on Administration.
Scroll down until you see JFFS2 Support section.
Click Enable JFFS.
Click Save.
Wait couple seconds, then click Apply.
Wait again. Go back to the Enable JFFS section, and enable Clean JFFS.
Do not click "Save". Click Apply instead.

The router formats the available space.

Wait till you get the web-GUI back, then disable "Clean JFFS" again.
Click "Save".
Reboot the router,

Also tried

Code:
nvram set jffs_mounted=1
nvram set enable_jffs2=1
nvram set sys_enable_jffs2=1
nvram set clean_jffs2=1
nvram set sys_clean_jffs2=1
nvram commit
reboot

Here the excerpt responsible for "ad blocking" on my Wifi router:
Code:

sleep 20
# get hosts file with unix EOL
wget -qO- http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.txt|grep "^0.0.0.0" >> /tmp/hosts
# re-read hosts file
killall -HUP dnsmasq

Copied years ago from this forum, somewhere... Kudos to the author Smile

It just works, ads are nearly gone. Finaly able to surf with tablet and mobile.
Since my router restarts at 5'o clock in the morning, the list is refreshed once a day.

Of course the solution is not perfect, but lightweight.

1) Get the file as terminalwindow
2) grep every line beginning with 0.0.0.0 into tmp/hosts
3) restart dnsmasq (issued cause "hangup")
