    This can be done in some routers, such as Netgear. If your router supports this you should see something like "Block sites" or "Parental Control" somewhere in your router admin area.

    If your router doesnt include site blocking you could try some free parental control software.

    K9 uses categories to protect users, if a site falls into one of the categories, it should be blocked. I havnt used this software, just going on the decription on the site.
