Hi,

I apologize, I posted this in Hardware, Components & Peripherals and had no response so I thought this was a better place. Believe me, I searched for this and couldn't find anything helpful or similar. I am using a Linksys WRT54GS, version 7 for my wireless network. I was resetting after a power outage, and decided I should block a few sites (had never used this feature before). Using the Access Restrictions tab, I,

1.) named a new policy,
2.) set my clients (IPs xxx.xxx.x.101-110),
3.) set times to 24/7, and
4.) put in some test urls at the bottom.

This did not block anything. So, I backed up everything and updated my firmware from (can you believe 7.50.0) to 7.50.8. No effect. Complete system power cycle. No effect. Updated browsers. Power cycle. No effect. Nothing in any other tab contradicted these.

I changed from IPs to the router MAC. Nothing. What am I doing wrong? I'm stumped. Does anyone have ideas?

Thanks for any time or help yall can give me!:D
