    Has anyone had any success with this? I followed the instructions identically (several times in fact) and I still have not been able to make it work. I can “block all access”, but whenever I try to “Block Some Access”, I can’t get any of the web filtering to take.

    the use case I’m trying to do is the following.
    – For specific computers on the network, I wish to allow all access to the internet except for a list of specified domains. e.g. google.com

      I am having the same problem, I do everything as above but I can still access the websites. I removed securpost and still nothing…I rebooted, I reset router nothing. Funny thing is, it worked ones and never after that.

      I am lost

        I was having the same problem, when I finally realized that this filter does not work with https, only http. Try with a http site and you will see it works.

        Doesn’t work for me either, was VERY simple with the 615.

            Tried several times selecting “Schedule”. Complete fail every time. I WILL NOT ever buy another D-Link product.

              ok you blocked http://www.youtube.com
              but what about https://www.youtube.com ?

              isn’t is kind of pointless to block only the http protocol ?

                instead of IPs I used MACs and it worked. The problem is youtube is still working on my iPhone / iPad when I use the YoutTube app. Does anyone know how to block the app?

                I am using a DIR-845 router. The interface is a CALAMITY, a distress, and a piece of junk!
                I will toss this router and never buy a dlink garbage again.
                No way to set up the network filtering function, no way to retain computer names, no way to program schedules. no way to…
                I do know what I am doing. The programming is not clean. No quality assurance.
                You are an insult to our time, intelligence and money!
                I had a trendnet router before. Was a charm
