Hi,

I have an Asus N-16 running DD-WRT v24-sp2 mega. I'm attempting to use the Access Restriction to block bit torrent traffic. Although I have an intermediate understanding of networking, I don't seem to be able to get this to work correctly. I believe I've followed the instruction carefully and to the letter, in case I misinterpreted the interface at all.

Initially, I enabled the filter, specifying my own IP address as a test and selecting all p2p protocols. This didn't seem to work so I added the preset "bittorrent" to the list of blocked services with still no luck. Then I specified the exact port my own bit torrent client is using and this also didn't stop the traffic. I then did a simple test to block a website but this also didn't work. I then tried using my MAC address instead of IP address but still no joy.

Unless I'm being a complete muppet, I can't see anywhere that I would have misconfigured this. I also can't see any known issues with my hardware and Access Restrictions. Are there any common mistakes made when setting up Access Restrictions that I could be making? Are there settings elsewhere in the router that can effect Access Restrictions and that I may have overlooked? Is there any other information I can provide about my set up and configuration to help diagnose the problem?

Start by reading the announcements. Access restrictions were broken for some builds, to pay particular attention to note 7 of the peacock.
