How is it possible to block facebook (or other sites) on WRT610N router, given that I have already set up Internet Access restrictions based on day/hour ? Is it possible to do both ?

I tryed it as you said, but if I select the option DENY, the fields for URL and KEYWORDS are disabled...
I i select allow, they are enabled?
I don't understand this system to block something?! Anybody can it explain to me?
Firmeware: v. 188.8.131.52

it's not working.
I have tried to enter "www.facebook.com" in "Website Blocking by URL Address" and "facebook" in "Website Blocking by Keyword", click "Save Settings", but still I can access it.
I even restart the router for second attempt and still no luck.

Has anyone had any luck with website filtering on the wrt600N??

I have succeeded on a WRT310N.
Go to the Access Restriction Screen
Enter a policy name under the appropriate field
Set staus to enabled (IMPORTANT)
Click the Edit List button and enter the PC(s) you want restricted. If using assign IP automatically and DHCP set the IP range that covers the DHCP range. If you want some PC's to have access and some no access, make the PC's you want to have access as a fixed IP address.
Set ACCESS RESTRICTION to allow
Set the schedule. (You may need to create multiple policies if you want to allow it part of the time
Enter the URL you want restricted in this case www.facebook.com (up to 4 sites per policy)
Click on save settings
Make sure that you are operating in the time frame you specified and test the blocking.
Since this policy will allow internet access only during the schedule specified, if the schedule was not 24 hrs, you may have to create another policy to cover the other time.
Hope that helps

Login to Router, click Access Restrictions, make a new Policy. Call Facebook, Go Status > enabled.
Applied PC's - edit list (put in both IP address of PC + MAC address or if a macbook use wireless mac address.
Access Restriction > DENY
Schedule > EVERYDAY > 24 hours
Website blocking by URL> www.facebook.com
Application name> facebook
Don't worry to put in ports!!
This should work fine to block facebook, skype or whatever ...

Can somebody help here. I have a similar issue with blocking websites especially facebook on a LinkSYS WRT160N. Once i enable the Internet Access Policy, enter www.facebook.com, and block the keyword facebook all computers connected through LAN then cannot access www.facebook.com. However All computers that are connected through wireless the policy doesn't apply for them. I'm not sure why this happens since the policy should apply for all computers on the network.
Any help will be appreciated.
