Hi,

We have a Cisco RV130W Wireless-N Multifunction VPN Router and are trying to block 'facebook.com'.

I have been through the admin guide and created the Internet Access Policy as instructed, but users can still access the site. See policy below:

- Status: Enabled
- Action: Always Block
- Schedule: N/A as set to always block
- IP Range: Set to DHCP range configured on router
- Domain Name: facebook.com

I can confirm that all machines in the office have an IP address between the IP range specified and have even rebooted one of the PC's to see if the policy would then take effect. Sadly still no joy.

Any help would be great!

Thanks,
Yellowbusteam

Did you also turn on Content Filtering in addition to URL blocking?   I have a different Cisco RV wireless router.

Hi John,

Thanks for the response. I don't believe there's an option to do this on the RV130W, unless it's tucked away somewhere.

Thanks

Here is the setting on my Cisco router. It is different than yours so may not apply.

If you cannot follow my procedure on your router then it does not exist.
