AdTrap a device that you can hook up to your modem/router and no more ads!!!

 

http://www.getadtrap.com/

 

With this device you can block ads on any device including you mobile, tablets etc (even those on free to play games/apps on ios and android), it can also potentially blocks ads from iptv.

 

This type of technology if actually embed into the modem/router itself can have a huge impact.

 

On one hand we as consumer will benefit from getting rid of the pesky ads which have completely  taken over any website/game/app etc. Which are so frustrating at times specially advertisement with adult content.

 

But on the other companies/websites that only rely on advertisement as their prime revenue stream could potentially close down. Even big giants like Google rely on them heavily and specially the free apps and games.

 

P.s:- To anyone who is going to point out ad block etc. Yes I am aware of them but this is a completely different take on blocking the ads.

Really? If everyone starts using stuff to block ads then everything on the internet will either die or require a monthly payment.

Yes but what if things like these get bulit into the modem/router?

thats stupid u can already do this with 3rd party firmware

140$ is overkill buy a 30$ used WNR3500L which has a powerful BCM4718 soc and just flash ddwrt or tomato and block

 

 

 

i believe u could block ads through dns

Rather use Adblock on the PC, as it's free and works well at keeping unwanted ads at bay.

Not going to pay $139 just to block ads. AdBlock is free so that would be a better choice than this.

All websites will probably block traffic with adblock installed. Most average users won't be able to get around the block and would disable their adblock.
