How to block ads using your dd-wrt router
DD-WRT is a third-party firmware that is compatible with a wide range of wireless routers from various manufacturers. The DD-WRT group has put together a fantastic resource list that makes it simple to understand and use.
The last time stable releases were revised was in 2008. I’m going to use beta firmware. We’ll save the hosts file as /tmp/sowchosts and use the 0 hosts files from someonewhocares.org. I’ve chosen a firmware version that is proven to work without problems on my router (thanks to testing and feedback from the community). Many websites keep ad-blocking hosts files on their servers. This one is easy for me to recall and use.
Set the following cron job under Administration > Management > Cron: “0 1 * * * root wget -qO /tmp/sowchosts http://someonewhocares.org/hosts/zero/hosts && stopservice dnsmasq && startservice dnsmasq”
I’ll use the cron job to re-download the hosts file, which is lost when the router is restarted. Plus, since the hosts file on someonewhocares.org is updated on a regular basis, I still have the most recent version on my router.

There are a variety of ways to block ads in your browser, but what if you could do it on your router? Here’s how to block advertisements for any user on your network using the DD-WRT firmware and intentional “DNS poisoning.”
The solution lies somewhere between the cost savings of not having to educate all of your network’s users about ad-blocking (I’m looking at you, mom, sister, grandmother, and office secretary) and the ease of not having to deal with it on every device you set up. That is, assuming there are any computers on your network on which you would not configure your personal environment (for example, “core servers” or virtual machines).
Note: While I use the method below on my home router, I find that ad-block is a great complement to it, and I suggest using both methods together. Even, if you don’t have a DD-WRT router, ad-block will suffice. In fact, I like the software so much that I donated to its founder, and I urge everyone to do the same to help it continue to grow.

How to block a device in dd wrt router
My point is that putting ad blocking on the router is probably not the best idea. You’re much better off with ad blocking on the client for limited network setups. For larger setups, I would consider using a dedicated caching proxy server rather than relying on ad blocking on the client. Keep an eye on the proxy logs and talk to those who seem to be reaching the ads a little more often than you’d like (since data on that are much harder to come by with the router solution).
Only when ad blocking on the client isn’t an option (obnoxious users, people who are never available, or people who are so far up the pay scale that they refuse to listen to you on principle – yes, all of these people MUST DIE but in the meantime…) can I recommend putting this stuff in the proxy and pointing to the dicks who are too ignorant to notice when things break (which I’m sure they will).
The traffic is routed via a proxy server using iptables on the router. Then you can use this proxy to set up more iptable rules to block or redirect a current list of known ads by IP… you might even trap the users with a beef redirect or anything.
