Is it possible to block websites with all wireless routers. How can I find out if a certain router has this administration feature, specifically the TP-LINK WR340G?

It may be easier to do that sort of filtering with a service such as OpenDNS.

I think what you want maybe just to get a router which is compatible with advanced firmware like dd-wrt, tomato etc.

You know that's a terrible list, right? It doesn't even include DD-WRT. –  Hello71 Jul 4 '10 at 15:25

To know, you should probably check the user guide for a given router if it's not an advertised feature. The specific router in question does have a decent firewall with support for blocking traffic based on IP, port, domain, or MAC address. You can view the domain filtering options for this router on their TL-340G simulator.
