Need to know how to block websites on home network

I just got this modem from Qwest to replace a bad actiontec. So far I prefer the actiontec as I was able to block websites I did not want my kids on. There doesn't seem to be anywhere to do this now with this modems setup?

    I do not want to block the entire network. We have 6 computers connected to it and everyone needs to be able to use them as needed. I simply want to be able to block just a few websites like I was able to do with the actiontec setup. This Motorola modem setup seems to have everything the actiontec did BUT the ability to block web addresses and I don't understand why.

You have two options that I know will work.

Run a Ethernet cable from you router or switch to the XBOX and just plug it in. Ethernet is good for 325 feet but it is best if you keep it below 300 feet. Here is a good place to shop for this type of stuff: www.newegg.com

You can also get an WIFI adapter that is 100% compatible with your XBOX. Actiontec is the worst of the worst. Here is an real Microsoft XBOX adapter: http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-Wireless-Network-Adapter-Networks/dp/B000B6MLV4

FYI: Customer support at any ISP or cable company are non-technical people that have no knowledge of how things work. If they did they would be answering phones all day. I find it hard to believe that they would know what works on an XBOX and they are fools for recommending Actiontec products.

It sounds like a firmware issue or problem. Have you tried updating the firmware of the router? If not, download the latest firmware from actiontec website and install it to your router. Note: After successfully updating the firmware, you need to hard reset the router. Press the reset button at the back of the router for 30 second then unplug the power for 30 seconds as well then plug it back n.

I have had this same problem with Qwest using a new iMac and MacBook on the Actiontec modem. Qwest did two things: first we reset the modem which was fairly simple and took only about 5 minutes. However, this fix lasts only a few weeks and it comes back. I have just ordered a new modem since there seems to be a problem with the Actiontec device with the newer high speed internet.
I'd try the reset before doing anything else. Good luck.

Want to use Dlink DI-514 with Qwest modem to hardwire 2 computers


Believe it or not, Actiontec modems from Qwest are setup as a router already (even though ports are missing from it). You should use a switch instead of another router. Otherwise you will have to configure the DI-514 to act as a switch rather than a router. This is done by assigning a new starting IP address into your DI-514. By default both routers use 192.168.0.1 as the default. You will have to plug the DI-514 seperately into a computer (to take it off the network) and assign a new starting IP address for the DI-514 such as 10.150.1.1 for example. Then you will be able to get it work. I would strongly recommend using a switch instead and turn the wireless on the modem itself (this is why the modem is the router). It will save you some headaches if the power goes out.

Problem between my Qwest actiontec modem and D-link router


You need to sign into the dlink router and check the status tab, to make sure that the router has picked up the modems IP address. it sound like it hasn't, and is just assigning lan IPs to the client machines, butd oes not have a valid WAN IP to the internet.

If it hasnt got a wan ip, you want to do a hard boot on the router .unplug the router ONLY for 30 sec, and power back up the router only ...not the modem this should allow the router to find the modem IP

I cant communicate with belkin wireless g router


It sounds like you don't have the units connected properly. Make sure you have a cable(wired) from your ethernet card on your pc connected to a wired port on the router. Then plug your router from its yellow port into the modem. Make sure your modem is connected to its Internet interface. Plug in your modem and wait 60 seconds for it to power up. Then power up the router.
At this point you should be able to access the router with the supplied installation CD. Run the setup assistant and it will define your wireless network. When you are through you should have internet access through the wired network. When you are finished you should be able to use the wireless network assuming you have the card installed correctly and the software for the card correctly installed.

Apple user attempting to fix dad's dell laptop windows xp home edition


I'm confused because you say your trying to make a lan connection on the dell laptop but your connecting it via firewire into a DSL modem. doing this method would be a WAN connection and not a LAN connection. To make a lan connection you need to connect the laptop via network cable (or wireless connection) to a router that is connected to your actiontek dsl modem.

I can help you connect the laptop to the internet but 1st i need to know if your trying to connect it to a router or did you want to do a wan connection from the dsl modem.

Thanks,
Brad Nelson
