RV042 router Content Filter options dosen't work

Unanswered Question
Mar 23rd, 2010

I have a RV042 router on which I've entered some domains to block them. It doesn't want to block them. For example I've entered facebook.com in the

Block Forbidden Domains section then I've saved the settings, restart the router. Went on IE type facebook.com and it open the login page!

I've updated the router to the latest firmware, still doesn't work!

Could some one help me.



I have this problem too.

I can't be sure if this is a bug or something in the design that wasn't well documented, but somewhere around version the content filter configuration changed.  The work around is to enable and configure "dual wan mode".  Try that and see if it resolves the issue.


I also had someone just tell me that you should try to input the domain without the sub or root.

So instead of putting in www.facebook.com just put in facebook.  leave off the www and com  I would try that before you work on dual wan mode.  If it does work using just facebook then you can try facebook.com and leave off the www.  I have seen a simular problem with other content filters not wanting subdomains and if you must have a subdomain you may want to try http://www.facebook.com.  Although I would do each step as a single test piece and then work your way up to the subdomain.
