Hey abraham2006,

i want to moniter or block the 2 systems browsing activites,from the main system when i require.

You will need to install third party software in order to achieve this. As to the rest of your requirements, a basic home network setup, as described in SpaceCowboy's Tutorial should do the trick. If you have any questions or concerns, or if you run into trouble while following his guide, please feel free to post back in this thread, and we will attempt to assist you.

Thanks,
- Dan

The easiest to setup and maintain on your home network would be OpenDNS, although I have never used this personally, I have heard some good things about it. With that said, ensure you look into the product before using it, to ensure it is right for you -- it is free.
