I want to know what is the best way to use the block sites feature on this router. I'm running a small network of 15 users, peer to peer. I want to know if it is possible to apply all the info that is in the host file directly to the router. I hope that makes sense. I can install the host fileon all machines if I have to and if recommended will do so. Just noticed that I have the capabilty with this router and I thought it might be to apply these restrictions at the router. Thanks

I also found out that on this model that it will only allow 30 some odd entries of sites you want to block. I guess I was hoping I could copy and paste a known list of bad site from a text file directly into the management software of the router instead of populating the Host file on every machine with the list of sites to block.
