I think most of the name branded routers do.  I personally use Dlink and I filter websites there (although I also use a nanny service like Norton's Family Minder for the kids computers).  When my son got an iPod Touch, I used the router to filter websites he COULD access as a stopgap until I could research what was possible.

Here's a link to the DLINK website and you can play with the menu to see features:  http://support.dlink.com/emulators/ebr2310_revB/Advanced_Access_Control.html

If you need more detailed questions answered, I'm sure some of our Experts in the Network Routers zone can oblige.

I don't, but appears my router does have some VLAN facility.  See: https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?pid=121572#p121572

I use the DIR-825 and there are probably many other models/brands that can do similar.  I'm very happy with mine, however.


You can go here:  http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=681 to get overview and manual, and to see more and on other DLINK routers.  You can also google other brands and go right to their manuals for further details.
