DNS-based AdBlock on OpenWRT
For OpenWRT, there are two options to block ads. I chose the regular Adblock package.
I installed these packages via luci:
- wget (with ssl)
- blacklist - default
- disconnect - run by mozilla, known from browser plugin
- reg_nl - based on ablockplus easylist
- urlhaus - looked trustworthy, but is run by one individual
Experimental support is provided, see the link I provided above. I haven't tried this yet.michaelvink wrote on Monday 25 February 2019 @ 13:19:
Does it handle Youtube ads well? PiHole doesn't really, unfortunately, so an alternative would be more than welcome!
Thanks for the suggestion! This blacklist seems to focus on client-side filtering, and appears incompatible with OpenWrt's adblock program. While the information could be re-used, I'm happy with the default lists I have for nowBlonde Tux wrote on Monday 25 February 2019 @ 13:21:
I've found that the blocklists from Energized work really great. They are extensive and modular, so you can setup blocking to your own liking. It's a great combination with the setup you propose here.
