Hi, i have a DIR-655 HArdware A4 Firmware Version: 1.33NA
I tried everything and can not get access control work.
It only works when i activate and de-activate securespot but once i reboot the router it won't work anymore.
I used advanced DNS and deactivated it...
The only way i can get it work is when i activate and automatically deactivate securespot.
Moreover, when it works... if the url starts with https:// i can get the website!!! :|
Any help please???
This is from Firmware Version 1.21 with Secure Spot Not Enabled at all.
Note: Access Control, if you read it, only affects LAN connected computers, not Wireless Computers.
Check Enable Access Control if you want to enforce rules that limit Internet access from specific LAN computers.
Click Add Policy to start the processes of creating a rule. You can cancel the process at any time. When you are finished creating a rule it will be added to the Policy Table below.
The Access Control section allows you to control access in and out of devices on your network. Use this feature as Parental Controls to only grant access to approved sites, limit web access based on time or dates, and/or block access from applications such as peer-to-peer utilities or games.
By default, the Access Control feature is disabled. If you need Access Control, check this option.
Note: When Access Control is disabled, every device on the LAN has unrestricted access to the Internet. However, if you enable Access Control, Internet access is restricted for those devices that have an Access Control Policy configured for them. All other devices have unrestricted access to the Internet.
The Policy Wizard guides you through the steps of defining each access control policy. A policy is the "Who, What, When, and How" of access control -- whose computer will be affected by the control, what internet addresses are controlled, when will the control be in effect, and how is the control implemented. You can define multiple policies. The Policy Wizard starts when you click the button below and also when you edit an existing policy.
Click this button to start creating a new access control policy.
This section shows the currently defined access control policies. A policy can be changed by clicking the Edit icon, or deleted by clicking the Delete icon. When you click the Edit icon, the Policy Wizard starts and guides you through the process of changing a policy. You can enable or disable specific policies in the list by clicking the "Enable" checkbox.
This section is where you add the Web sites to be used for Access Control. The Web sites listed here are used when the Web Filter option is enabled in Advanced → Access Control.
Website Filter Parameters
Enter the URL (address) of the Web Site that you want to allow or deny; for example: google.com. Do not enter the http:// preceding the URL. Enter the most inclusive domain; for example, select allow and enter dlink.com and access will be permitted to both www.dlink.com and support.dlink.com.
Note: Many web sites construct pages with images and content from other web sites. For example, to access my.yahoo.com, you would need to select allow and type yahoo.com, yimg.com, and doubleclick.net.
