I meant modem to adtrap....
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.....
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...
this thing works great
I have an adtrap that I will be listing on ebay this weekend with a starting bid of $65 - if interested messafe me - have original box, cords and paperwork - used for 1 month
I see that on Dec. 5 Chad told someone to use support @ getadtrap.com. That forum is locked. How do we request support?
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.
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!
I have yet to get my ad trap!!!

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?
I am selling my ad trap, auction starting at 74.95 @ http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll…
includes everything & box...
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.
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?
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 ?
@Mary contact us via getadtrap.com support
@archieoi, yours has been shipped
Never got an AdTrap, dropped 120 on this. Am I SOL?
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
Today I logged in my adtrap.... I got this.....
HTTP/1.0 500 Perl execution failed Server: MiniServ/1.610 Date: Mon, 11 Nov 2013 18:21:38 GMT Content-type: text/html; Charset=iso-8859-1 Connection: close

Can't call method "param" on an undefined value at /usr/local/webmin//homeinfo/index.cgi line 56.
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?
Could you please send my tracking number?
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.
I still have not received my adtrap?
I thought products were planned to be shipped in last month?
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.
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.
@gryphonent Same here!
Didn't expect this from this team. :-( Going to pay extra for a basic mistake.
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?
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?
@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
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.
@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.
@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.
Awesome! Just how it should be
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!
Mehmet, click update in the interface. Then go to settings -> general. Dns settings at the bottom.
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.
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.
Does the Adtrap allow for dhcp passthrough? I
@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.
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.
i recived mine in Japan! working Great!!
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?
