    Routers with built in web-site control

    Hi;

    I'm looking for a router that will reliably stop me accidentally
    opening a dodgy website; and more to the point, stop wife and
    grandchildren from doing it.

    I've got a Draytek at work, and it's a gem, with content management
    software; but the software is reliant on an external supplier who no
    longer update their URL lists, for example.

    So I'm looking for a wifi router that has good, reliable, web-site
    control that isn't going to run out! Can anyone suggest anything?

    TIA

    Tim

    Hello Tim:

    Googling "parental control routers" shows:

    Why do you need to stop your wife looking at dodgy websites?

    How certain are you that every website you visit hasn't been infected
    by some nasty? I'd like to be as bulletproof as possile; and to be
    sure that anyone who connects to my router is as well.

    Thanks Pete - but the first one was PC software (not router), the
    second one was just a list of routers; the first one in the list
    didn't have parental controls of any kind; I din't check the rest; and
    the third one was a review written in 2004. I was kind of looking for
    a personal recommendation - I've trawled all over the place but
    there's nothing with good sitecontrol built in. Thanks again, though.

    I agree with you, but may be a good HOSTS file can avoid surfing.

    Yeah - did that; couldn't see the relevance. That's why I asked the
    question.

    Thanks Rambo - the idea of having something within the router itself
    is so that anyone who connects to my network is protected; and that
    includes my desktop, my (two) wi-fi netbooks, my wi-fi PDA; etc.

    Apparently Trend Micro are doing something with Linksys, and Draytek
    are about to update their internal safety stuff; so I'll keep looking
    that-a-way!

    Thanks all.

    I've never had a problem with rogue websites, as I don't use Internet Explorer.

    The only thing that can get into my computer is a virus which I consciously download. AVG stops those anyway.
