i'm trying to block an ip range that always shows up when i browse the internet. blocking a few of the addresses in hosts has no effect and they still connect, blocking the full range in a firewall means i simply can't browse the internet (udp connections still go through). i thought maybe it was my dns server but when checking other computers on the network they do not get these connections.
any help would be appreciated, thanks.
Thanks for your question Cornflake.
What are you referring to when you say [I]"i'm trying to block an ip range that always shows up when i browse the internet."[/I]? How is it "showing up"? Popups? Redirects?
If you have iptables available in your router, you can block TCP and UDP.
