      I meant modem to adtrap....

    2. Creator A. Joseph on December 16

      I've been using my Adtrap now about a month or more. My setup is: router to adtrap to Apple Router then that router breaks off into a Time Machine and another Apple router via ethernet. From the various routers I have 4 different wireless networks and using any of them ads are pretty much 95% gone. Devices connected, Samsung Edge, Note 2, 3, iPhone 4s, 5, iPad 3, surface Pro, Dell Venue 11, Instacube, MacBook Pro, ipod touch, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, 4 and a few other connected devices.
      Needless to say I'm extremely happy as are my guests when I ask then to pay attention and let me know if they get ads on their phone or tablets when they connect to one of the networks. The main culprit is YouTube which is a hit it miss for anyone mobile or desktop. Mobile Games and Aps Ads are gone period.
      Keep up the great work Team!

      Anyone having problems with their AdTrap, try the secret Factory Reset:

      1. Unplug your AdTrap from the power supply and all other cables.
      2. Plug AdTrap into the power supply. Wait for the first light to stay on.
      3. Unplug from the power supply and plug in again. Wait for light #2 to appear.
      4. Repeat unplugging and plugging in until all 4 lights appear lit and rapidly cycle.
      5. Your AdTrap has been factory reset.
      6. Crack a beer and celebrate.
      7. Remember to change the generic Admin/Pass so you don't get haxored.

      I can't get my adtrap to work and trap anything! Looking for help.....

    5. Creator Tad Helke on May 21, 2014

      I am trying to connect to my adtrap for the first time and it is not responding on the default IP of 192.168.211.1:10001. I have tried factory resetting, and no go...

      Please advise.

    8. Creator David on March 2, 2014

      I see that on Dec. 5 Chad told someone to use support @ getadtrap.com. That forum is locked. How do we request support?

    9. Creator Lou Caputo on February 9, 2014

      I have an Ad trap I've never used, LNIB. Does anyone want to make a deal? I paid $120 for it, but would let it go for $99 plus shipping. CONUS only please. Message me if interested.

    10. Creator Albie Raj on February 9, 2014

      Hi guys,

      Been using my adtrap for a while now, it rocks!!!

      Just beware that it does not stop ads from huluplus or spotify, other than that, it it as promised!

      Cheers,

      Albie

      I've purchased my AdTrap and I never received it. I left several messages on the board and sent other few private messages which all were completely ignored.
      Could anyone from AdTrap find out what happened to my product or at least issue me a refund?

    14. Creator Al Calavicci on January 20, 2014

      I am selling my ad trap, auction starting at 74.95 @ http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll…

      includes everything & box...

    15. Creator Frederic Vanoosthuyze on January 12, 2014

      Looks like Chad has disappeared from this site. If you are like me and waiting for your AdTrap, just say good bye to your money. This is a shame that delivery of such a nice tool has been so badly performed.

    16. Creator Ricardo Furtado on December 15, 2013

      Hi AdTrap team,
      This is the third time I ask about my AdTrap and I hope it won't be ignored like my other two messages. Could you please let me know the status of my AdTrap order? In case it's has been shipped could send me the tracking number?

      Cheers

    17. Creator Ronald Luhmann on December 13, 2013

      My AdTrap worked GREAT as advertised initially .... but later was causing several modem/router resets each day to regain internet connection ... have disconnected it ;-( and not dropped connection since ... anyone else having the same issue ?

      Never got an AdTrap, dropped 120 on this. Am I SOL?

    21. Creator Mary Mahler on November 12, 2013

      I received my ad trap and the instructions are not detailed enough to work correctly. I still get tons of commercials. Please HELP! Marymlvfb@aol.com

      Hi Guys,

      since the 7th of october my AdTrap is stucked at the custom (I live in Belgium) though the status is "Customs clearance processing complete" and I don't receive any feedback from USPS. What should I do?

      Hi guys,
      Could you please send my tracking number?

      Cheers

    25. Creator Josh K on October 24, 2013

      Hi,
      I suggest next time to use for international shipping one of the international delivery services like FEDEX, DHL or UPS. I have no way of tracking my AdTrap which may or may not have arrived 7 weeks after the survey.

    26. Creator Sam Beyene on October 22, 2013

      I still have not received my adtrap?
      I thought products were planned to be shipped in last month?

    27. Creator Adam McGready on October 13, 2013

      Hey chad, I posted on the forums about the xfinity online tv player not working on the website or mobile apps. Also hulu plus seems to block ads entirely on my xbox, but not my ios apps or the website. The website replays a clip of an ad three times prior to loading while the ios apps show a black screen with the ad timer. Besides this the adtrap has worked flawless and I saw you guys liked my shoutout on Facebook about the product.

    28. Creator Joe R. on October 12, 2013

      Where do I go to inquire about my adtrap? Just wanna know when I can expect it. I filled out survey 1st week of September.

    29. Creator Telmo Mendes Leal on October 12, 2013

      @gryphonent Same here!

      Didn't expect this from this team. :-( Going to pay extra for a basic mistake.

    30. Creator gryphonent on October 8, 2013

      And yet another Kickstarter where the invoice wasn't attached to the outside of the package! A mere statement about the value doesn't suffice! So I'm off to customs now with proof of payment and order confirmation, most likely paying another €40 to get the package in my hands!!!! And after all the reports on here I wonder if it's worth it? Maybe I just should deny the shipment and send it back, asking for a refund from AdTrap or my credit card company ... sooo tired of projects that don't do their homework for int'l backers but gladly take their money.

      Not working in what way?

    35. Creator W Henry on October 6, 2013

      Hey Chad, I checked the forums but couldn't immediately find an answer to why https on Google and Facebook doesn't work (cleared cache, updated adtrap) - is there a link you can provide to walk people through this?

    36. Creator Chad Russell on October 6, 2013

      @James, sorry to hear that, may I ask who you talked to? We spend a lot of time on the phone with people making sure they are setup and happy

    37. Creator james curtis on October 6, 2013

      I sold my Adtrap device, because it was causing problems that, despite my contacting "support" a few times, were not resolved. I found the "support" to be very unsupportive, actually. and that, my friends, kills it for me when buying a new tech product.

    38. Creator Mehmet Acr on October 6, 2013

      @chad I solved. I unplugged my modem and then my adtrap. Then plugged again and changed dns address manually on my computer. Everything seems to working fine now.

    39. Creator Mehmet Acr on October 6, 2013

      @chad In fact I did that, I unchecked "Use DNS Server From DHCP" and entered the DNS Server 1 and 2 field with Open DNS server address and clicked Save but still it gets my cable modem default DNS address.

    40. Creator Chad Russell on October 5, 2013

      Awesome! Just how it should be

    41. Creator Kris Van Lier on October 5, 2013

      Got my adtrap today. Had to figure out some settings because i have a modem/router with fixed IP --> adtrap --> wifi router. But it is all working fine. I disabled adblock .. clicked refresh ... closed my eyes .. opened them ... and everything is perfect ! Thank you guys!

    42. Creator Chad Russell on October 5, 2013

      Mehmet, click update in the interface. Then go to settings -> general. Dns settings at the bottom.

    43. Creator Mehmet Acr on October 5, 2013

      I have just received my Adtrap. Quite strange experience. Like it very much except DNS change. I tried to change DNS servers from Dashboard. But it doesn't work. I use Adtrap between my cable modem and Airport Express. I would be glad if someone tell me the correct way.

    44. Creator level1imp on October 5, 2013

      UK backer here; received my adtrap yesterday, set it all up (aside from needing to unplug and then plug it back in to get it running properly, everything was incredibly simple) and has been doing a fine job.
      Adblock is now getting a much deserved rest.

      Thank you Chad and the AdTrap team for delivering a great product.

    45. Creator CLINTON J WHITE on October 3, 2013

      Does the Adtrap allow for dhcp passthrough? I

    46. Creator Chad Russell on October 2, 2013

      @Liz, many popups are blocked, checkout the pirate bay with and without AdTrap as an example, the site is almost unusable without AdTrap. The firmware based software is based on a class 4 sdcard which isn't the fastest disk speed, most if not all network operations are done in memory so aren't affected by disk speed.

    47. Creator Liz. T. on October 2, 2013

      I am a little worried about the performance. Popups are not blocked yet and the device slows down the page speed during loading processes. In addition a view web based television networks do recognise the adtrap as an adblocker and the videos are not displayed for that reason.

      During configuration and set up processed I noticed that the firmware based software of the adtrap itself tends to have huge loading times if you switch functions or want to see the log files.

      Hi Chad, I pledged for two AdTraps but only one arrived. Are you sending the other one as a separate consignment? Anybody else out there with a similar issue?
