Advanced DHCP/DNS Control to block certain traffic

Recommended Posts

Id like to suggest two things

 

1) Give us a more advanced network monitor for the R1 where we for example can inspect what DHCP packets it receives plus the option to change those. That way we can trick spying devices such as Google Home or Alexa via changed DNS that they should send their accumulated user data to some arbitrary non-existant address rather than to the Google or Amazon server.

 

2) Same as above but fully automated so the user doesnt have the (obvisouly very powerfull) monitor and manipulation rights. Say you can pick from a list of existing hosts in your network one device and everything is then handled automatically for it.

 

 

Yes i can use third party software and/or hardware to achieve that, but the R1 is all about having features that no other router has and a feature to block devices like Alexa without rendering them unuseable surely would be something a lot of people might be interested in.

These are good ideas but I think they're quite niche and may require a bit of work. I'll pass it on to the team but I can't imagine it would be something that takes priority.
