How to Filter Websites Using Wireless Router

How to Filter Websites Using Belkin N Wireless Router

by Ruri Ranbe, Demand Media
Most modern Belkin routers use 802.11n -- the technical name for Wireless N signals -- to communicate wirelessly with other devices. Compared to previous wireless standards, such as Wireless B, Wireless N is faster and offers improved signal strength. Some Wireless N Belkin routers come with a Web filter that enables users to block certain websites. Companies can enable the filter on the router to prevent employees from accessing malicious sites that could potentially harm workstations on the network.

Step 1

Launch a Web browser and type "http://router" or "" (without quotes) into the address bar. Press "Enter" to access the router administration page.

Step 2

Click "Login."

Step 3

Leave the password field blank and click "Submit" to sign in to the Belkin router.

Step 4

Choose "Website Filters" from under Parental Controls.

Step 5

Select "Block Malicious, Adult or Other Non-Family Friendly Sites," "Block Malicious and Adult Sites" or "Block Malicious Sites" from the options, depending on your preferences.

Step 6

Click "Apply Changes" to configure the Web filter on the Wireless N router.
