    Hi, ive been using victeck 1.25 mod for sometime and now the 1.28, i have a WRT54GL, i also tried other firmwares and my problem is blocking torrents eg. bittorent, bitcomet, vuze etc. seems like access restrictions are not working when it comes to blocking these torrents, thanks

    OpenDNS has features that block P2P including torrent sites.

    You can't block torrents, it's just the nature of them.

    Don't waste cpu on l7 filters which a. don't effectively classify torrent traffic and b. wastes cpu. Open dns will help by blocking trackers, but it's can't block peers, although I'd be interested in knowing how effective it is with dht. Someone will just use port 80, 443, or a vpn in the end.

    You can make life more difficult, but you can't stop them as it only takes on peer connection to start gaining peer ips.

    What you should be doing here is using a crawl class with zero bandwidth :)
