Hello,

We have a Netgear DGN2200, and we want to use it to block access to certain websites. We entered the websites in the keyword field, and it seems that it is working fine only in IE. If I try to open a website in Google Chrome it is opening fine. So it is completly useless function at the moment.

How can I fix that ?

Hi goliveuk,

Technically it should be filtering traffic on port 80 irrespective to the browser. This seems like poorly written firmware. The manual uses terms like Netscape Navigator...LOL. I'd say it's time to upgrade to a Next Generation Firewall (NGFW). Is this for business use or personal?

Try upgrading your firmware to the latest release.

Let me know how it goes!
