Question
How do I setup Parental Controls in my SBG10 gateway?
Answer
The SBG10 Parental Controls feature provides the ability to restrict client devices (e.g. computer, gaming console, tablet) from accessing specific Internet web sites based on URLs or keywords.  The web sites can be blocked for certain times of the day, certain days of the week, or at all times.  Two client devices MAC address can be added as a Trusted user to be excluded from Parental Controls.  The Parental Controls feature also uses the Router Time located within Utilities - System Settings of the Web Manager.  By default, the Parental Controls is disabled, which allows access to Internet web sites to all of the devices at all times.  This document describes how to setup Parental Control feature to restrict access to a specific website. 

NOTE: Adding a Trusted MAC entry is optional.  This option allows the Client's MAC address to not be affected by Parental Controls settings.
