How to Block Websites on a Belkin Router

If you are in a household with children, it is likely that there are several websites that you would prefer they not visit. If you own a Belkin wireless Internet router, you have the capability to prevent access to any website you choose. Use your Belkin router's configuration utility to block access to questionable websites.

Step

Open a web browser and enter the address "192.168.2.1" without the quotation marks into the address bar. Hit the "Enter" key on your keyboard. Click the "Login" link in the page that appears.

Step

Enter your user name and password to access the router configuration utility. If you have never changed the password, enter nothing in the password box and click "Submit."

Step

Click "Parental Control" on the left side of the screen. Note that you must have a subscription in order to use this service, but most Belkin routers include a six-month free trial. Enter your email address and password to log into the parental control menu.

Step

Click the "Modify" button, then click the "Overrides" tab.

Step

Enter the name of the website that you wish to block. Use the menu to select "Always blocked." Save and exit the configuration. The website that you entered will now always be inaccessible, unless the parental control manager password is entered.
