Dear,

I have installed diversion (standard) on my asus rt-ax88u
The pixel server is installed
I have selected the large blocking list.

I disabled AIprotection.
I enabled DNS filtering and selected global filter mode router.
And i have installed the ca.crt on my mobile devices.

And i'm still getting adds on all the mobile devices.
Can anyone tell me what i'm doing wrong?

Did you reboot the router? Is a swap file installed? Did you remove the USB drive from the router that you installed Entware to?

A lot of times the mobile versions of sites host the ads on the same server as the content so there's nothing you can do.

Your desktop computers are ad-free now, right?

If you click the "use desktop version" option on your mobile devices, I'll bet the ads go away.

I have reboot the router and a swap file is installed.
Why do i need to remove the USB drive from the router ?

I have tested this with a pc:
* If i use chrome i have no adds but on the other hand i have installed a plugin in chrome to block adds
* When i use Microsoft edge than i have adds.

So i seems that i doesn't work.

No, I'm not suggesting you remove the Entware + swap file USB drive. I was asking if you did. The drive may be failing on you.

Yesterday i also installed UIdivstats.
The graph is telling me that it blocks some adds.

I don't know why the diversion is also blocking adds in the middle of the night ..... because we where all a sleep.

Mobile devices love phoning home around the clock, it's probably blocking analytics URLs

SSH into the router -> AMTM -> (1) Diversion -> (f) Follow DNSMasq log -> (3) Blocked Domains.

Then browse around the internet. Go to places like www.sportingnews.com (lots of ads) and see what flows in the logs. You can always add servers to the blacklist if something seems egregious.

I tried this.
So i assume i can make the following assumption.
It does block adds but not everything.

Another option is SSH into the router, go to directory /opt/var/log and look for dnsmasq.log.
to follow the log, run this command: tail -f dnsmasq.log
to follow diversion blocked log, run this command: tail -f dnsmasq.log | grep diversion

You may also try (2) Unfiltered Log Extra Highlighted. This will show you all queries, basically, and give you an idea of additional things that you might want to add to the Blacklist.
