    Hi everyone,

    I have just purchased the Sony NSZ-GS8, and I started navigating the internet using the google chrome preinstalled version and the amount of ads, baners and popups is pretty annoying. At first time I tried to install the "AdBlock" addon to the chrome app but it was completely impossible. ¿Is there any another solution like this one that works on this device?

    As the last resort, I'll add web restrictions to my wireless router but, if I can avoid this, I'll be trully pleased.

    Thank you in advice.

    Best regards,

    Miguel.

    Guys,

    I installed the wifi ad blocker and I followed everything it said below including enabling overwrite/repair Wi-Fi but when I go in test mode it still stays red and doesn't turn green. Then I went to a website to test it out and sure enough the ads popped up.

    Retroben or anyone know why this is happening? Do I have to make any adjustments on the router?

    Thank you for the help.

    If you can't get that adblocker to work - some GTV users have success using a different adblocker called "OpenDNS" with their router. It's explained in the following thread:
