Is it possible to block msn using a belkin router?

Posted by MaxRockliff on

  • MaxRockliff Aug 18, 2008

    My objective is to limit the time my children have IMing rather than doing homework and study. Unfortunately I fear they would simply disable any local PC blocking I may implement, which is why I want to use the DSL modem/router. I have been able to block all traffic, but would really like to enable browsing while blocking MSN. Leaving port 80 open lets MSN through.

    go to the toolbar>tools>internet options and go to the content advisor tab click enable and go through the entire site. you can type in any web site and select never etc and if you go on to advanced you can password your settings.





    YOu can also do the samw in your virus control. You can choose certain sites or types of sites that they cannot use. and you can password it. Just don't use a password that they can guess.



    I'm sorry I don;t know of anyway to block the router. The First solution above works very well. Just familiarize yourself with the tool and then yo u can go in at will and allow them to go there or not.



    Good luck to you.

Why does belkin router blocks netflix ?


After you connect your router to your computer via an ethernet cable, enter the router's home page by entering 192.168.1.1 on a browser. Once there, look for DNS and enter the open google dns numbers.

Msn not receiving messages


I might advised you try reinstalling the MSN on your computer. It might the main problem is on the software that was been install before.

Note: If the Internet is working properly then if you can surf to the Internet. It means that the connection is working properly. Did you check if some of the messenger is working?

Try to clear the cookies of your browser first. Also delete the browser history. If that did not help, try to reduce the MTU of the router. You can do it when you access the router's setup page through internet explorer http://192.168.2.1

Msn connection problem through router


Make sure your internet browser settings are set to default and that you can actually get to other sites besides msn.com before deciding this is a msn web site issue on your firewall. Also, make sure if you have a software firewall like Norton that you allow and have not inadvertantly blocked msn.com. Add msn.com in your browser settings to the 'safe sites' list in browser settings.

Belkin router blocking programs


The firewall is probably set to block. The IP address for Belkin is 192.168.2.1. you can log in and set the firewall. Also, if it is a program like gaming , you may have to open a port for it.
