    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:
