    At work we bought a D-Link I-604 broadband router to try something out at our stores. We wanted to limit internet access but have remote control over the settings (this router had that.) Well we are all gitty and adding URLs today then we get to lucky number 10 and it says we can't enter any more.

    Come to find out you can only have 10 URLs to allow OR block - LAME.

    Does anyone know of a solution - in the form of a router - to allow and disallow URLs WITHOUT a limit? We are obviously looking for something cost effective. If we can't do anything then I'll have to write a program to do it ;)

    Thanks.

    I'm sure if you were willing and able to put together a computer running Linux to serve as a router, you could set something up with iptables... I don't know off the top of my head exactly how to do it, but I'm willing to bet there is a way.

    Or use Sygate's products if you're linux shy. It has white and black lists
