Background: WRT300N V1, running 1.03.6 firmware (latest version available)
I have successfully been able to create rules that blocks all internet access for certain MAC addresses (my kids PCs) from 11PM to 6AM Sunday-Friday (school nights).
I am now trying to set up a rule that blocks access to Facebook during certain hours of the day, 9AM to 4PM to be specific. I've not been able to block Facebook however.
I've tried by creating a rule that blocks by URL and entered "www.facebook.com" under ACCESS RESTRICTIONS > INTERNET ACCESS POLICY > WEBSITE BLOCKING BY URL ADDRESS, and I've also tried by "website blocking by keyword" with "Facebook" as the key word, and cominations of both of these, but I am still able to access facebook, even after power recycling the router after saving the new config, and ensuring that the rule is enabled from the Summary screen.
I've tried this in its most simple form to eliminate conflicts with other rules so, in this case, not applying any MAC address restrictions or day/time restriction. If I can successfully get it to block facebook always for all PCs, then I can fine tune the rule to restrict days/times/MACs. Help... What am I missing?
Thanks for any help.
