    Hello I am looking for a cheap linksys/ dlink /smc /netgear that can
    block access to external ips / subnets. I have a linksys can block
    access to ports but not ips. I would like to configure my router as a
    host in my subnet and deny access to clients in the same subnet as well
    as access to other subnets. Looks like only a cheap cisco could do this
    but may be there is a netgear or dlink router that can do this. Does
    anyone have any suggestions on how to do this? thanks.

    cant quite figure out your specific question.

    used an older di624a here and it will block ip or ip-ranges
    offers several different configs to do it actually so you need to be a bit
    creative to get think // max of 40 rules.

    you might look at current model of that router and most likely dlink has
    emulator available in support for it.

  3. Yep. For DI-624 see:
    Seems to support LAN side blocking by IP address range but not by
    subnet. Also, I think there's a limit to how many filter rules can be
    added, but I don't know the exact number.

  4. For Linksys WRT54G using 3rd party firmware you should be able to write
    unlimited (or at least limited only by size of memory) rules for the
    firewall (certainly possible w/ sveasoft, but I would expect the others to
    be just as flexible).
