It’s been a while since I last posted any updates on this blog. I believe, it’s almost 3 years since I last wrote anything on this site. Here’s a short rant from me.Continue Reading
In my past blog posts I’ve been sharing how you can, with a few simple steps, you can easily block ads on your wifi network. This technique however requires that you find a running adblock DNS server that you can use.
In this post, I show you how you can set up your own caching Adblock DNS server.
Fedora 26 Final has just been released! Woot! Woot!
In preparation for an actual distro review of Fedora 26, I have decided to look at the boot times and suspend times of this distro.
Hi readers. Just to update you guys that the servers listed below died. I did not renew their lease, cause I was trying to save some money. Servers ain’t cheap y’all. I did not know that people were actually using them. My bad.
I might set up new ones, but don’t count on it.
In the meantime, I recommend this one: https://adguard.com/en/adguard-dns/overview.html
I set up new dns adblock servers.
I can’t guarantee/promise to keep them running forever. But for now, you can just use them.
As mentioned in previous of this article series, Adblock WiFi works by wiring up your Wifi router to a DNS adblock server. I have set up 2 such servers so you don’t have to. Update: these servers stopped working. My apologies.
dns1.bancuh.com (22.214.171.124) dns2.bancuh.com (126.96.36.199)
These DNS servers act similar to regular name resolvers, such as Google’s, OpenDNS’, or even your ISP’s DNS servers. All that they do, is to resolve domain-names to valid IP addresses.
However, I have also included a blacklist of known ad-servers to them. If you use my DNS Adblock servers instead of Google’s or your ISP’s DNS servers, you effectively block ads.
In this exercise, I’m going to teach you how to apply Adblock to your WiFi router, using my DNS adblock servers. Here’s what you need to change.
Here is a comparison of various Adblocking technique that I’ve tried, and why I think that we need Wifi Adblock.
