How to block websites using your home router ?

Hello Guys,

I heard there was some way you can block websites from being accessed from your LAN, if you setup the home gateway (router). I think it had to do with DNS. The aim is to block adult websites from being accessed from device in my LAN. You can also tell me how to block specific websites, say www.google.com from being accessed anywhere from the LAN.

Please advise

it depends on the router as they are different. However a better way that i would do it is create my own proxy server and direct all traffic through that. Using the Proxy server you then can add filters.

worked perfectly thanks a lot :D
