Is there a way that I can control my wifi internet browsing. I got many children visiting me with their families and they use laptops, tablets, mobile phones, etc to surf the web on my broadband WiFi Network. Is there a way that I can block some types of sites in my broadband WiFi?

Are you trying to block websites or limit the amount of time one can be on the internet? – Dynamic Jun 9 '13 at 19:17
Have you tried searching? – terdon Jun 9 '13 at 19:17

Quick-n-Dirty: Set your router to use opendns and filter the categories you desire. You can always turn it off later.

That was difficult. Need something easier – Saqqaf Jun 9 '13 at 19:51
Takes about 5 minutes to protect every device on your network. This includes iPod, laptops, etc. the only easier method is to unplug your Internet while they're in town. – BrianAdkins Jun 9 '13 at 20:01
I did not manage to be able to change the DNS. It can not be changed in my BT Hub settings. This is the problem! – Saqqaf Jun 9 '13 at 20:05
Sorry about that then... Looks like BT locks things down pretty tight which makes opendns difficult...… – BrianAdkins Jun 9 '13 at 20:57
OpenDNS difficult? You may want to consult a third party IT company. – kobaltz Jun 9 '13 at 21:05
