Youtube slow downs fix

Post by mbourd25 »

Hi, I've been reading around the web concerning Youtube being slowed down by ISPs or that Youtube cache servers are just slow.

If I would like to block certain IP adresses at the router level, how would I go about to implement this?

I have a Netgear WNDR3700v1 with Gargoyle version 1.59.

Here are the some web sites discussing this.

Thanks.

Does anyone know we can apply these rules to the Gargoyle Firmware?

iptables -A INPUT -s 173.194.55.0/24 -j REJECT
iptables -A INPUT -s 206.111.0.0/16 -j REJECT

Thanks.

Just add them into /etc/firewall.user file then /etc/init.d/firewall reload

Hi powerlogy, sorry for my ignorance, but do I go through the ssh connecting to the router to enter those commands in the file /etc/firewall.user or just enter the ip addresses, or just go through the GUI and enter the ip addresses in a the firewall?

Thanks.

If you are using Windows, you can use WinSCP to editing files easily on router.
