Do you want to block certain websites like adult, advertising or promotional websites etc.? from the sight of your children or other users in the house?

The guide mentioned below will help you block the desired websites on your Belkin router on your own and without the help of Belkin technical support services.
Connect your computer with an Ethernet cable to one of the 4 LAN ports (located on the back) of the Belkin router. When done, connect to the Internet and open your web browser. Type ‘192.168.2.1’ (without quotes and as is) in the browser’s address bar and press Pay in on the keyboard.
Enter your login credentials such as username and password on the router login page and click the Send button. Make sure you write the correct information; otherwise, you will not be able to access the router’s configuration page. If you never changed your login information, it should be the one that originally came with your router documents. Please check them for reference if you are unsure. Since Belkin routers ship without a password, you do not need to type anything in the Password box, just click Send to continue to the configuration page. If you previously added a password to your router, please enter it to continue.
Click to select the Parental control feature on the left side panel below the Utilities Vault. The location of this feature may differ depending on the model of your Belkin router. It should also be noted that you should have subscribed to the ‘Parental Control’ service in order to use it. If you are in the follow-up offer period, you can use the service until it expires. Thereafter, you can subscribe to the service.
Enter your email address and password to log into the ‘Parental Control’ menu. When you log in, click the Modify and then click the Cancellations tab. Enter the website name (URL) you want to block in the ‘Enter keyword or domain name here’ box, select the ‘Always’ button under’ Keyword blocking ‘, and then click the’ button Apply’. Yes, now you have finished blocking the desired websites. Enjoy safe browsing!
Make sure you type the website URL completely and accurately. Otherwise, the router will not block it. For example, you want to block Facebook’s “official site” in the “Add keyword” box and then click the “Apply” button. You can also type in a keyword like Facebook and the router will block all results that contain that particular word ‘Facebook’.
