Use Peplink’s Firewall Feature to Block Netflix

As of firmware 6.3 Peplink Routers can block traffic from specific applications.

To begin navigate to Network > Firewall > Content Blocking (For MAX Devices: Advanced > Content Blocking).

Add the following customized rules to the customized domains:

  • nflximg.*
  • netflix.*
  • nflext.com
  • nflxvideo.net
  • nflxext.com

Don’t forget to Save and Apply the changes and devices on your network won’t be able to view any Netflix content.

Note: Make sure you flush your dns settings between testing changes to avoid loading websites that have been cached already!

If you want to block entire categories of websites (e.g. media streaming, adverts), read about our list-based web-blocking feature.

Is there any way to content block on specific wan connections? I would like to block Netflix over cellular but allow it over WiFi as wan and WAN.
