    Hi everyone, this is my first post and already excited browsing the topics posted here.

    I have a D-Link DI-624+ wireless router, connected to a ZyXEL Prestige 600 series DSL Modem. Computers are connected to it both thru cable and wireless.

    I was wondering if there is a way to block internet radio from being access by computers in this network? I was planning to block yahoo messenger and media player from accessing internet radio?

    :) Thanks

    I would htink you could redirect - http://music.yahoo.com/ - back to your local loopback on the PC's in the Hosts file. But I am not 100% sure if this internet radio is something outside of web browsing. ALl my searches point to http://music.yahoo.com/ though.

    Thanks, yes I think the url blocking is the only way I can block them.

    I will look into the links you have given.
