We have 10 computers, 4 of them are in a small computer lab.  I would like to restrict certain websites for just those 4 computers that are in the lab.  Does anyone know of a router/firewall that can do this.
These computers are not on a domain.

You do this additionally with the Cisco ASA very easily and the Microsoft ISA Server.
