In this particular router the is no actual parental controls but there is access restrictions that can be enabled or disabled. Disabling this should fix your concern.

Sounds like parental controls. If you are sure it is in the router and not security software installed on the computer log into the router from a html browser, IE, Firefox yada yada. name field blank password as admin. On the Access restrictions tab, which goes from left to right , Setup Tab, Wireless, Security, Access Restrictions. Then Internet Access. See if you find any policies listed there.

hi! I think your dad set the parental control on the router setup page, in order to remove this restriction, u need to access the router setup page by pulling up a browser and at the url , type in, by default the username is admin and the password, just leave it blank, if you can access the setup page then select on parental control and just turn it off and the restriction will be disable.. first things first, u need to access the setup page in order to turn off the parental control..
