    Skynet Skynet is blocking github.com?

    Also having issues with GitHub lately, sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't - odd. For example: I cannot access: https://github.com/RMerl/asuswrt-merlin/wiki/DNS-Privacy "This site can’t be reached github.com took too long to respond." Other sites I'm having issues with include Sneakenery...

    How easy is this to setup with ASUS Merlin running router? I'm tempted to buy a Raspberry Pi 4 Model B Starter Kit. But not sure if it's simple enough for a newbie or if that's even the right kit, ha. Would the steps be as simple as explained on this Reddit post?

    replacement to RT-AC88U

    Single 2.5Gbps port is better, you can easily add on a few extra gigabit ports for the cost of an 8 port switch (like $20/£25). It's an upgrade I'm tempted with coming from my AC88U also. The price tag might suggest the AX88U is better and superior but it's not when compared. AX88U beats it in...

    I've pixelserv enabled and has never been disabled but noticed it's changed to 0.0.0.0 via WebUI and via PuTTY. Only thing changed is updated to beta 3 + the above IPTable rules.

    Intreseting! I guess there is really no way to block these Ads now other than AdGuard on PI. I think my Diversion has become damaged though `a ad-blocking to IP 0.0.0.0` all of a sudden I'm sure yesterday it said 192.168.1.1, would this be the Skynet firewall iptables?

    Hi, yes when using the apps I'm seeing that type=65 in dnsmasq log. I noticed Skynet reporting this: Is this anything to worry about? IPTables Rules Failed.

    Hi, many thanks. Yeah the Vellum App seems to never get ads anymore since I updated the app via App Store so seems Diversion is blocking it again. On 4G there is an ad soon as you open the daily wallpaper/try to download. Snapchat stories, Twitter and Instagram seem to be the worst ads, logs...

    Thank you. That's brilliant. Here is my result, looks pretty much the same (minus the comments). ASUSWRT-Merlin RT-AC88U 386.3_beta2 Sat Jul 10 17:09:51 UTC 2021 RT-AC88U-E998:/tmp/home/root# iptables -nvL INPUT | grep 'pkts\|0000410001' pkts bytes target prot opt in out source...

    Thanks! That allowed me to enter the command no error but also same time no success message? Is that normal.

    Thanks for checking and confirming. Is this the default Mail client? I mainly just want to block in-app ads and Twitter posts sponsored but based on you guys testing it seems it breaks a few things (although I use Gmail in Chrome and Mailspring client). However, I've no idea how to run iptables...

    Thank you! Is iptables ran via Skynet?

    Noted! Thanks for the steps. I'm seeing a lot of query[type=65] around the Twitter and Instagram domain when a sponsored post appears. The same can be said for Snapchat (CDN) viewing stories and the advert in-between every story.
