-For Adblock to work properly, client devices **must be configured** to use FreshTomato's IP address (dnsmasq) as their DNS server. This can be done either in static form (on the device itself) or through FreshTomato DHCP Service. For the latter method you would first enable DHCP under Basic/[[network|Network]]. To enable the actual DNS server, select "Use internal DNS" under Advanced/[[dhcp_dns|DHCP/DNS]]. These two steps are mandatory, as clients bypassing FreshTomato's DNS server will not have their ads blocked.+For Adblock to work properly, client devices **must be configured** to use FreshTomato's IP address (dnsmasq) as their DNS server.

 Beginner's note: FreshTomato's built-in ad blocker is separate from the ad blocking scripts seen on the Web pasted into FreshTomato's custom script window. If you also use one of those, and enable FreshTomato's built-in ad blocker, conflicts and problems may happen. Choose and enable one but not both at the same time. Beginner's note: FreshTomato's built-in ad blocker is separate from the ad blocking scripts seen on the Web pasted into FreshTomato's custom script window.

-Increasingly, more and more device are using DoH (DNS over HTTP(S), DNSSEC and other encrypted DNS lookup protocols. Adblock will not work with these DNS lookups. This is both because they are encrypted, and because in many cases, they are directed to a third-party server, not to the FreshTomato router/device.+Increasingly, more and more devices are using DoH [DNS over HTTP(S)], DNSSEC and other encrypted DNS lookup protocols.
