[Solved] What means "manually compatible" router?

Hi all

Before buying all the necessary parts to build an eblocker I was wondering what it means if my router is "manually compatible" with eblocker. This is stated for the Unitymedia Connect Box router I use.

I assume it means that I have to use the network mode "individual settings" as stated in the manual, because eblocker does not work in a Plug and Play sort of way. So I would have to manually turn off the DHCP in my router and leave eblocker to assign the IP adresses in my network.

Is this correct? Are there any other differences compared to routers not listed on the compatibility list?

Thanks for getting back to me. I hope this also helps others who use a router listed on the compatibility list.

router is "manually compatible

It means that your router is not Plug & Play compatible and you need to make manual adjustments: login in router, disable dhcp, enable dhcp in eBlocker. There is a wizard guiding you thru the process. Do not turn dhcp on your router off before the wizard tells you. It‘s super easy - takes 3min - but it‘s not Play & Play.

What do you mean / expect as answer? 99.9% of the routers work Plug & Play and are not listed. Some are listed because they are very frequent among users (to avoid „but what is with my xyz router“), others because they need manual adjustments. There is no deeper meaning in the table and you got the answer for your router already...
