Blocking 4od and youtube ads, march 2012 (privoxy) part
I’ve been using DD-WRT for about two years and have decided to make a list of the top ten reasons why I love it. You’ll need a compatible router to get started with DD-WRT, and then you’ll need to flash it with DD-WRT.
It’s likely that this is why I began using DD-WRT. Individuals, businesses, and governments can and do snoop on your internet traffic and keep you responsible for something that might be used against you. For example, consider the popular love letters that Comcast sends to its movie-downloading customers, or the Chinese dissidents who are imprisoned for opposing the government.
It’s easy to set up a VPN client on DD-WRT. The majority of VPN providers offer setup instructions. Running a VPN on your router is superior to running it on individual devices for many reasons. For one, you only have to set up one device, not several. Second, it is more safe because it protects us from IP leakage.
At home, you can easily allocate names to gadgets. For example, instead of 192.168.1.1, I now go to router.hom.e, and my Raspberry Pi is rpi.hom.e. I used to try to allocate static IP addresses, and I’ll try to recall them now.

I just purchased an Asus ac68u router for 180 dollars and would like to get some use out of it. I’ve built Brainslayer and would like to know how to block advertisements. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!
Privoxy was allowed, but it didn’t appear to block any advertising. Then I allowed transparent, which gave me another choice to add an IP address, I believe. I was at a loss for words. I literally switched it off. Finally, I had no idea how or where to change the proxy server’s IP address to 8118. Under the adblocking tab, the alternative was N/A.
How to block ads without adblock or software using your
4.To trigger the script, reboot your router. It’s as plain as that. You should note a noticeable lack of advertisements the next time you visit a website. As long as your machine is linked to your Tomato router, the same should be true. There are a few drawbacks to this option versus the Adblock extension that you should remember before installing it on your router. To whitelist a site, you must first manually edit the script by modifying the following section:
…replacing aa.com with the url of the domain you’d like to whitelist. Whitelisting does not work to whitelist all advertising on a particular site—rather, if you’re having trouble accessing a site you want to look at because it’s on a blacklist, whitelisting that site would enable you to access that site.
OpenDNS is the service you can use. Then you can point your router’s or computers’ DNS settings to their DNS. If the IP address changes every few weeks, a small utility on any machine will update it, but if it’s static, all the better. They have a section where you can block items in your account settings. Everything you have to do is look up a black list of items to block on the internet (ad networks). You may be able to find one by looking for a hosts file.

Privoxy allows you to forward web traffic selectively over HTTP or SOCKS proxy, allowing you to redirect some or all of your web traffic via Tor and/or to a proxy server of your choosing. This can be used in a number of ways, including
When using a local caching proxy, it’s natural to presume that you’ll need it for all pages, so you’ll set it up statically in the Privoxy config file. If you’re forced to use a proxy to gain access to the outside world, the same rules apply. In all other cases (and for the rest of this guide), we’ll assume that the aim of chaining another proxy onto a filtering proxy like Privoxy is to use it selectively, only forwarding URLs that we specify to Privoxy.
When you use a remote HTTP proxy, your traffic is routed via a different link. Unfortunately, free proxies are usually worth exactly what you pay for them, so while this can substitute for a VPN if you have a suitable proxy available, it’s unlikely that this would be useful unless you run your own proxy server or have access to one.
