    Hi There

    I'd like to know how to configure a TrendNet TEW-692GR to block/limit Facebook and other websites on one or all computers that access the wireless router.

    We homeschool and the boys are having trouble dealing with the distraction of social media while using their computers to get school work done.

    I've tried listing FB IP address ranges (the 66s, 69s and the 204s) in Access Control and under IP Range Block Rules, and using the schedule page to set an access schedule. Everything looks reasonable but we can all still access FB. What am I missing? I think I found all the IPs for FB, maybe not? Not truly clear if the schedule is for times to block or times to access.

    Thanks for your help

    Success!

    I had to block the following IP ranges and the listed URLs to get a complete block of Facebook. Now to work out an effective access schedule for the boys and I. I am looking forward to reclaiming some of my own time too.
