A server machine is not necessary at all no, the router will do fine. What you can do is use nslookup and find out the ip addresses of the sites you want to block and do it that way (it will take a long time to do this) so I could suggest using a proxy server which then you can just enter the ip address into the proxy and it will block it.

Dansguardian is one I would recommend. It is linux based.
