Hello,
I am trying to filter what my children are seeing when they surf. The problem is I'm running W2K on a 700 mhz Compaq. I just upgraded to Verizon Fios and the new router they gave me had filtering software incorporated in the firmware, which worked very well. Verizon has since upgraded the routers firmware and the new firmware doesn't support the third party web filtering software. I have the ability to create a costum-filtering rule, which could be a list of either web sites or words. I'm looking to filter out pornography/sex sites. Is there any way of getting a script or list that I could cut and paste to my router and create my own web-filtering rule? I've tried some windows based filtering software, which work ok, but my browsing becomes very slow, I mean really slow!! :blink:
