Question about Arris WR850GP Router
Is there a way to use my Motorola WR850GP for parental control of the whole home network? The parental control page of the router firmware seems very archaic. Do I really have to input all the x rated web pages and all the dirty language as keywords in order for the router to function as parental control? Is there an easier way to protect my whole home network? It consists of two desktops, two wireless laptops, and a sony play station 3 with wireless. Even if i purchase software and load it up on the computers, i dont have a clue as to how to install it on the play station even if i can. Our ISP is Bellsouth but they have been little help. My modem is a Westell I got from Bellsouth, but the router I got from Radio Shack.
Is there another device I can purchase to install between the router and the modem that would offer protection? My main concern is someone accessing ****. One of the desktops is a business computer so I have to have the home network up and running all the time. Any suggestions? Thanks.
If you want dynamic monitoring/filtering of the web traffic you might need to install software on all the PC's! When it comes to the Playstation 3, there should be settings on there that you can set! Check out this page : http://www.gamerdad.com/detail.cfm?itemID=3558 When it comes to the dynamic filtering of sites, the most highly rated Parental Control Software is Content Protect(Now NetNanny)! http://www.netnanny.com/ By dynamic filtering, it means the the parental control mechanism, automatically blocks sites due to content(it updates over the internet!) The router can only do so much! :( hope this was helpful, regards, babb
