Netgear router wont block websites

    I have a Netgear DG834G wireless router and have it connected to just
    my one computer via an ethernet cable. I have been trying to block
    websites just to see how the feature would work if i had more than one
    pc connected to it but the problem is no matter how i add websites or
    keywords to be blocked i can still access the sites that have been
    added and applyed to the block list.

    Has anyone with this router been able to restrict sites viewed on it
    or is there something else that i have missed. I have 'everyday'
    ticked in the schedule menu and don't see why this feature is not
    working.

    Thanks in advance.

    can still access the sites that have been added and applyed to the
    Not ideal, but in the interim, how about setting up a hosts file on each
    machine ?

    Might be wrong here but dont you have to re-boot the router to get the
    changes to happen?

    Sorry for my intrusion
    I have also a netgear router Dg 834, but without wireless option. Last week,
    because my cordless phone is broken it, I have bought another one. I have
    bought a siemens Gigaset A140 and last one was a cordless binatone. Every
    time that I make or recevie a call my adsl lose the connection. Often, but
    not ever, during this calls the router can't able to restabilish the
    connection, just when the call ends the connection come back ok. Other times
    the router during the call is able to reconnect, but when the call ends the
    connection fall out, and after some minutes come back all right.
    What can I do???
    Do I have to change my phone?
    Or is there some special filters?

    Thank you at all in advance.

    Check the ADSL filters. Possible that the filter is broken.

    Yes, you need a micro filter for each phone.

    http://www.clarity.it/
    www.adslnation.com
    http://www.adsl-filters.co.uk/

    Are good places to look (with thanks to the people in the thread above
    who gave me these links).

    You can also replace the master socket for one with built in filters if
    you feel adventurous - see above links again.

    No. I have the non-G version and I don't have to.

    Thank you at all.
    Yes it is a filter, because I haven't a filter in the plug where connect my
    phone.
    But in the box where there is the router there is also a filter, and
    actually I have connected my phone there, and now everything work fine.
    I'm sorry for my english, but as I sayed in a last post, I'm italian.

    Thanks a lot.
    bye

    Yes, you need a micro filter for each phone.
    I have seen the filters, but I have another doubt. The phone/adsl cable have
    a first box where externally there is the phone plug, and internally there
    is a derivation for the dsl cable that link to the router. Between this
    derivation and the router, there is a filter, where is possible to connect
    the cable of the router.
    Which type of filter I have to buy?
    My landlord said me that there is a special filter that is useful for me,
    and I have to pay attention when I will buy it.

    I have something similar. There is a short lead with a plug at one end
    that goes into the master socket and at the other end there is a small
    plastic box with a socket for the telephone and another for the router.
    In mine the filter is actually built into the small plastic box.

    If you plug this lead directly into the master socket (i.e. do not use
    a filter) and then plug your telephone and router into the two sockets
    at the other end then all should be well.

    If you have extension sockets that you use for a telephone then you
    will need to buy a filter like this:

    http://www.clarity.it/telecoms/adsl_bits.htm with a reference
    ADSL/MICROF1 £8.00

    Or you can go to:
    http://www.adsl-filters.co.uk/ where any of the three filters will work.

    Some are better than others, I don't know if anybody else will make a
    recommendation?

    If you have extension sockets that you use for a telephone then you
    If I buy the first one and connect just the plug of the telephone, leaving
    the adsl cable connected inside the box on the wall, I will have problems?
    Because the router is in another room far from the box about two meters,
    where there are also the connections of the house's LAN, and here there is
    also a filter, where actually I have linked the phone. But in this location
    I have to put in the phone's basament the on the floor.

    You should only use a filter on the telephone, NOT on the ADSL
    connection.

    The Clarity PRO microfilter has one BT-style socket (filtered, for
    telephony equipment) and one RJ11 socket (unfiltered, for ADSL
    equipment). So if you get one of these and plug it into an extension
    socket then you can plug a 'phone into the (filtered) 'phone socket and
    your ADSL modem into the (unfiltered) RJ11 socket. If the computer is
    plugged in somewhere else then that's fine just leave the RJ11 socket
    empty.


    I am losing track of your wiring arrangements so I hope this makes
    sense :)

    Does your non-G version work when it comes to restricting websites of
    your choice. If so is there anything else you might have done that i
    have missed out on?

    Thanks

    Just tried this on my non wireless DG834. Blocked the Wanadoo site by
    putting that word in the list and making sure 'always' was selected.
    Clicked apply, logged off. Cleared the cache or refresh the site and it
    came up blocked.

    Thanks i tried the same thing as you but it still lets the site
    through i'am using windows 98 not sure if that has anything to do with
    it, even though it should'nt would be nice if i could get this feature
    to work but looks like it won't

    I am using Win 2k, but I don't think that affects it. I do set up the
    network addresses and DNS servers manually both in Windows and the
    router. Not sure if this has any bearing on the matter. Maybe others can
    comment on that aspect.

    The only other thing that occurs is the schedule. Is it set to everyday?

  20. It happens that David G formulated :
    It also works with my DG834G. I have just tried it blocking 'yahoo'.
    Any Yahoo URL produces a red and black webpage from the router advising
    that the site has been blocked by the router.
