Well, reading through the Friendly Manual,  http://www.2wire.com/pages/pdfs/2Wire_1000_User_Guide.pdf  it doesn't look like it's very easy to do.  You MIGHT be able to do with with Static Routing - so you find the IP of the website and route them to loopback (127.1.0.1).

An alternative is to modify the host file on the PC's in question - and change the host files so that the website address resolves to loopback - 127.1.0.1.
