I've found Adguard doesn't function well with fast connections and had to cease using it. You aren't alone in this observation, I have a thread here discussing it and was told it's probably a limitation of the firewall driver.
I've noticed, Drudgereport recently started pushing ads nothing seems to block. I've tried Adguard, Adguard for Windows, uBlock, Ghostery, adblocking DNS services, etc.
I'm in the midwest of the USA, and my pings to the adguard DNS servers are 150-200ms.
I love the idea and love it in testing, but those pings prohibit use. Are there any servers closer to the midwest where pings will be better?
Did you flush DNS, disable your NIC and re-enable it to ensure the new DNS was pinned?
I've confirmed now through multiple tests, Adguard DNS impedes Uplay Store. It says "Something went wrong with the store, please see support options". If I switch to Google DNS on the router, flush DNS...
I cannot use Adguard for Windows because my connection speed is too high. Adguard for Windows firewall driver has a harcapped speed limit of 425Mbps maximum, but generally sub-400Mbps.
I've been testing Adguard DNS for a few months without any major issues.
But one issue has had me remove it. It blocks the Uplay Store within the Uplay Client. I noticed Uplay is pretty particular about what ads are blocked within it. It appears like Adguard DNS blocks domains that it requires...
This is discouraging. Interestingly, last year when I tested Bit Defender I found it's firewall driver only capable of 150Mbps or less. I run Dr.Web these days which is fully capable of maximum speeds. I do notice a general decline in web page loading performance with Adguard installed that goes...
I have a 750Mbps/750Mbps symmetrical connection. On my gateway I have a 2,000,000pps edge firewall capable of pushing 750/750 sustained with no packetloss or dropoffs.
On my desktops I average 725-800Mbps speeds. However after Adguard is installed I lose about 50% of my speed in speed tests and...
I feel it is CRUCIAL for an adblocker to consider blocking Windows Telemetry for privacy reasons.
Also, I can help with this development aspect if needed. We spent 3 weeks sniffing Windows 10 Traffic to develop what I feel is the most comprehensive list of domans/ips to block. We also tested it...
How do I add something like this to Adguard?
If you want to manually add the filter, here is the code you need:
The ads launched today. Looks like they are burying them into feeds to look like organic content from people you know. VERY clever.
However, to see the difference there is a small 'Suggested' text on each one to differentiate, and a specific button that is different from all of your other...
