Block websites

I called EE Tech Support 3 times, they said you could't block website, but you can.

 

Its easy


Just go to http://ee.co.uk/help/phones-and-device/home-broadband/bright-box-2-wireless-router/bright-box-2-adva...  and search for URL blocking

 

General filter is found here

Re: Block websites

Yes, obviously.

 

 

There is no way to block websites using the hub settings. 

You can fill in the website addresses to block, but it will not work correctly. 

 

However there is a far better way to block sites and have good child controls, this is OpenDNS.

It is quick, free and is far superiour. 

And it works.
