Certain streaming services will function more reliably if you block specific IP addresses on your router.

This guide will show you how to block IP addresses on Asus routers.

To block IP addresses on your Asus router, you will need to set some special routing rules to ensure your network traffic does not flow through the IPs you specify.

Block IP addresses on your Asus router

Log in to your router admin panel

To access your router admin panel, go to 192.168.1.1 in your web browser and log in with your username and password (by default, both are admin). If your router’s IP address was changed in the past and you cannot remember it, you can find it in your device’s settings.

Change your router’s network settings

In your router admin panel, click LAN.

Click “LAN.”

Select the Route tab.

Click “Route.”

Enter the following:

  • Enable static routes: Select Yes.
  • Network/Host IP: Enter the IP address you wish to block.
  • Netmask: Enter 255.255.255.255.
  • Gateway: Enter 192.168.1.1. (If your default gateway was changed in the past, find it in your device’s settings.)
  • Metric: Enter 2.
  • Interface: Select LAN.

Click the + icon on the right.

Add a network to the Static Route List.

Then enter the following again:

  • Network/Host IP: Enter the IP address you wish to block.
  • Netmask: Enter 255.255.255.255.
  • Gateway: Enter 192.168.1.1. (If your default gateway was changed in the past, find it in your device’s settings.)
  • Metric: Enter 2.
  • Interface: Select LAN.

Click the + icon on the right.

You may need to block a few more IP addresses, depending on which streaming service you are trying to access. To learn more about which IPs you need to block, contact the ExpressVPN Support Team.

Enter “ping” and the IP addresses you have blocked, e.g.,
ping 8.8.8.8

The ping tests should read “Timed Out” or “Destination Host Unreachable.”
