D-Link DIR-655 :: Access Control Name Cannot Be Empty String
Feb 26, 2008
When attempting to configure access controls from the advanced menu I enable the access control checkbox. I then follow the configuration wizard completing each step as directed by the wizard. When I complete the wizard and try to save the rule I get the following error message regardless of how I complete the wizard. "Name can not be empty string". Yes, cannot is misspelled in the message. I have tried every combination of choices in the wizard and many combinations of naming the rule to no avail.
This did work properly on a previous firmware version, probably 1.04 or 1.05. I have not tried back loading to the previous versions to see where it did or did not work. I don't know how well the router goes back and don't really care to reload all the settings again by hand if the automatic recovery doesn't work.I want to use this feature to control what hours certain machines on the network have access to the internet.
I have tried to setup access control by setting up a policy that restricts certain MAC addresses during a period during the day from certain websites. I set up the website filter and a schedule and selected them for the policy. Instead of blocking just the websites on the filter list during the time setup in the schedule, it blocks all websites all the time.I made sure that I setup the policy to 'block some access' NOT 'block all access'.The only thing that seems to work is that only the computers with the MAC address selected are effected.
I may be doing it incorrectly, but I'm trying to configure web access rules. I first set up access control and tell it to use the website filter. I've tried configuring it by both MAC address and IP address (separately, not simultaneously), but it still allows the listed sites in the web filter to get through. Is there something else I need to block or am I not doing something correctly? The network is on DHCP reservation, so IP addresses are always the same. MAC addresses, as I mentioned, don't work, either and they are fixed and logged in the router.
DIR655 with 1.33NA firmware. I'm trying to determine how to block access to the internet for a specific LAN computer when the user knows how to change a MAC address. I don't want to turn MAC control on and grant only to listed computers - the list doesn't accommodate enough MAC addresses, and the client has wireless and wired since it's a laptop. I also don't want to set static IPs on all of the devices since some cannot accommodate that feature.I'm thinking that reserving an IP address isn't ultimately the solution either, since assigning the IP isn't going to work if the MAC changes. how to use access control under these circumstances?
I'm trying to block internet access to a range of IP addresses using the Access Control function of the DIR-655 router. Unfortunately, the router does not allow me to block a range of IPs. Instead, I can only create policies based upon individual IPs or MAC addresses. I have over 60 machines I want to block Internet access and I'd hate to have to type them in individually. How do I go about blocking all Internet access (HTTP/FTP/email/everything) for a range of IP addresses? They will have to be able to continue to use the internal LAN.
I would like to use the web access control that is on the DIR-615 along with my 2Wire modem/wireless router. Is this possible? If not is is possible to put the 2Wire modem into bridge mode and purchase a second wireless modem to run along side the DIR-615 that I have so that I can have two separate wireless networks that have two different web access controls in place?
I want to do what I thought would have been a simple enough task - block my kids phone/computer after certain hours. Instead of blocking the specified MAC address(es), all my computers does not have internet access. As soon as I disable the policy, internet access is on again. Here's what I did:
My firmware is 1.35NA and have a schedule established. When I try to add a policy for access control, I can select a policy name but when I hit "next", I get an error stating "Internet Explorer has stopped working" and wants to close. I was able to add policies previously but can not any more.
Trying to set up a simple schedule for keeping the kids from staying up all night. I'd had this working on a Linksys WRT54G till it bit the dust. I just want it to block internet after midnight. My problem is that the schedule is triggering the block unpredictably.?
I have a situation where I have tenants connecting to my wireless network and paying towards the internet bill. I am able to control this by using MAC filtering, but I have just realised that this only works for wireless clients.
Is there a way to replicate this for the router's Lan ports? Or possibly even just disable Lan access. The router model is a D-link DSL-2750U.

I'd like to make exception keywords in the Access Control but I don't know how I could possibly do this. E.g. I have put in the keyword "apple" to be blocked, so if a domain has the keyword "apple" in it, it will be automatically blocked. What can I do, however, if I want to make an exception for the domain "appletree.com"? I haven't found any way to make an exception to specific domains or keywords.
I have several laptops at home that connect via wireless connection tot he DIR_655. Using the MAC address of those laptops, I want to prevent them from going to certain websites.Under 'Advanced" and "Website Filter", I addes several domain names (websudoku.com for example). I selected "DENY computersaccess to ONLY these sites". I then saved settings.I then went to "Access Control". I clicked on "Enable Access Control".I clicked on "Add Policy" to cdreate a new policy for one of the laptops.When I boot the laptop and go to one of the websites, it still allows me access. The URL/domain name is correct.

Setting up access control for one PC. I just want to block all internet access to one PC during a certain time. It seems like my only options in the Access Control page in the GUI is to block websites or domains.
For some reason I can't get Access Control/Webaccess Filters working on my Dir-655 w/ 1.35NA. I've tried it with MAC and IP Address without any success. I've also enabled/disabled/enabled DNS Relay, recreated the rules, recreated the filters, etc. Nothing.
I'm trying to set up a website filter on my DIR-601. I created a policy for 2 MAC addresses, with a schedule from 10AM-6PM, selected "Block some websites", and disabled logging. Under website filter, I added some entries, and selected "DENY computers access to ONLY these sites". When the policy is enabled, and I try to access one of the blocked websites, it gets blocked correctly ("The URL access was denied by administrator.") However, for all other websites, I get "server unexpectedly dropped the connection" errors, eg "Safari can�t open the page [URL] because the server unexpectedly dropped the connection. This sometimes occurs when the server is busy. Wait for a few minutes, and then try again." or in Chrome "No data received. Unable to load the webpage because the server sent no data." This happens with ALL non-blocked websites. I'm using hardware version A1, firmware version 1.01NA.
With firmware version 1.31, the Wireless settings page is blank when a browser other than Internet Explorer is used to access it - for instance, Firefox or Chrome.All other pages appear and seem to work properly, only the Wireless settings page is empty. Luckily, the Wizard still works and can be used to set the Wireless settings for general purpose use. Older versions of the firmware worked fine with other browsers, including the Wireless settings page.
We have a WAP 200 wireless G access point. It worked perfect before. About two weeks agao, we didn't change anything, it began to send empty alarm email every 10 minutes. We upgraded the software to newest version,restarted it several times. But till now, it still keep sending empaty alarm email.
I created some acess-lists, and you can assign a logging level to this access-list. Now this ACL has a lot of hits, so i want to see whats happening. Only the log I then see is completely empty. I cannot figure out how to get some info in that log.
I think there is some global logging setting i probably need to enable in order to get anything logged at all, but i cannot figure out which.
I have a device Cat 3560. I have defined the SNMP Community Strings as shown in the config. But I Add the device in "CA Spectrum" it fails.The device responds on ICMP protocol but fails on SNMP protocol. The device is directly accessable through directly connected switch. [code]
How to to successfully configure and connect to a DynDNS account with RVS4000? This was working fine for me until recently when I think I upgraded the firmware to 220.127.116.11.I am trying to connecting to DynDNS.org service. In the past, I used the following string for the Hostname which worked: 'mysubdomain.domain.com&system=custom' (including small quotes). According to the RVS4000 documentation, all you should have to do is specify the host name with DynDNS but this clearly is not accurate.
We have a small office and already have a firewall in place that uses content filtering. I am looking for a low cost wireless access point that I can place behind my firewall that will allow me to control access by a username and password list, not just the passkey.
Does this exist without having to go to an Aruba or Ruckus type enterprise WIFI product?
I'm looking fot a way to do static URL blocking with ASA and when the URL is blocked present a "Web Page" to the user saying that it's been blocked.
So, i was wondering if i can use the http parameter "spoof server string" to replace the original URL sent by the user for another URL that points to an internal web server holding a basic page saying "Your URL request has been blocked".
The point is to have a way to tell users that the page they are trying to browse is blocked by a policy.
I'm trying to set parental control for one of the kids in household, url...2gaming2Every Day 06:00 - 22:43 (meaning from 6am to 10:43pm he can acces ONLY those two sites, correct?)but, when I turn parental control on, all internet is off for him even allowed sites. Time right now is 21:44 gmt+2 and my router time is set right, so I don't know why it doest work?
For our children, we use the parental control feature of the DIR-615 (RevD, FW4.11b15), which works excellently. I use the whitelist feature, so only trusted web sites can be accessed. Unfortunately the DIR-615 only has 10 entries in that list and I will soon need more. So I wonder if there is another D-Link router that offers a bigger list with maybe 50 or even 100 entries?
This has finally become a BIG problem. Any time I have iTunes running and downloading podcasts, it hogs all the bandwidth for the Internet (but not the local network). This is not only slowing down access from the machine running iTunes and the downloads but for every other device trying to web browse.I'm running two Macs and one Windows/Dell PC on the network. All are hard-wired (Ethernet) to the DIR-655. How to throttle iTunes? I did some research and found that I am apparently not the only one having this issue.I'm about to bail on iTunes entirely and try to get used to Miro, which does allow bandwidth control.
I have a D-Link DIR-615 and am trying to set up the Access Control so that I can restrict Internet connection from midnight till morning (to keep my teenage kids from staying up half the night on the Internet)I can step through the Access Control set up, but I don't see how I can block only one MAC address or computer from accessing the internet at specific times.
