Information

 
Question
How do I block access to a specific website in my SVG2482AC Gateway?
Answer
The SVG2482AC Parental Control feature provides the ability to block client devices from accessing specific Internet websites (URLs).  Websites can also be blocked containing specific keywords used.  Both blocked website (URL) and keywords work injunction together.  These specific Internet websites are blocked on all client devices in the home network.  

The client devices can also be blocked for a specific time or day.  When client devices are setup as Trusted Computers, they will bypass Parental Control.  By default, Parental Control is disabled with no restriction, which allows access to Internet websites on all client devices.  This document contains the following sections:
