Router: ASUS RT-AC66U
I've been trying to place a router level block for devices on my network so they can't access certain IP ranges and they don't seem to be working.
The why I found this article: »mitchribar.com/2013/02/how-to-st···s-guide/
when trying to figure out why youtube on my Viera TC-P55VT50 was stuttering so much it was unwatchable, and always has been. (Actually in general youtube had always sucked for me on Verizon Fios)
So I found some articles
»How-to: Reddit YouTube firewall rule with MI424wr
So I went into Firewall > Network Service Filter
I Enabled the Network Services Filter, and it is set to Black List
Destination IP 206.111.*.* - Protocol TCP ALL
Destination IP 173.194.*.* - Protocol TCP ALL
I left source IP and ports blank. ( I also expanded the 173.194.55.* to 173.194.*.* because it didn't seem to be working )
I hit apply and everything looked good to go.
Went to youtube and video still played, but looking at net information in firebug still shows connections with successful replies to 173.194.x.x on ports 80 and 443 ip/connection depending.
So I found this »superuser.com/questions/392509/o···-ip-port
to try and test if TCP traffic was actually being blocked. For which i get this result.
c:\Users\ED\Downloads\nc111nt>nc 188.8.131.52 80
HTTP/1.0 400 Bad Request
Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8

A 400 response is still a reply from the server. So my rules aren't blocking tcp traffic to the ip ranges specified.
Is there something I did wrong, or another setting to make this work? Or should i just just unlazy and flash DD-WRT on this?
