D-Link DIR-655 :: Website Filter / Access Control For Wireless Laptops
May 2, 2011
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.
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.
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 had the website filter ON and it was working very well to block a few websites on a schedule. And after a few month, it doesn't work any more. While it is possible that I scewed up the setting , I have tried so many settings.
So:DIR655 fw 1.32NA,hw A3,"Enable access control" is on with the desktop MAC address (used copy this MAC)(I have also tried my laptop MAC),web site filter is set to "deny",the router time is set using NTP dlink server,
i need to block internet on all computers in our clinic except few websites (URL) that we need. I'm doing this on the router in WEBSITE filter in the manner of DISABLE ALL, except...
Specifically i have issues with using FAX client. ringcentral.com is ENABLED on the router, so anything within this DOMAIN will work (as forum.ringcentral.com etc.)
BUT when i attempt to send a fax, it falls into a black hole. although the client application shows - being sent, it wont go to SENT items and it just disappears. When i disable the website filter on router, it works.
there must be a different URL that the ring central call controlled tries to connect when sending. Receiving works no problem even with the website filter on. How do i detect / intercept what ULR / IP address is truing to be reached so i can enable it on the website filter ?
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.

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.
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?
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'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'm using my 655 as a WAP, so nothing is connected to the WAN port. Since I run a SBS2008 in my home, I also have the 655's DHCP disabled.If I enable Network Filtering, everything inbound/outbound on the LAN ports works except accessing the Admin page. Even if I put the connecting PC's LAN MAC in the tablet.
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.?
For the last week, I haven't been able to access my banking web site (Royal Bank in Canada). It doesn't matter which browser (FireFox, IE, Chrome) or computer (desktop, laptop) or even my cell (on WiFi).It must be the router (DIR-825, HW-B1, FW-2.07NA) since I can connect to the web site fine if I connect straight to the modem. (Also, if I turn off WiFi on my cell, I can connect to their web site but once I turn WiFi back on, it wont connect).I tried restoring to factory settings but that didn't work.I tried some of the suggestions here: http:[url].....
- Turn off ALL QoS or Disable Traffic Shaping. Advanced/QoS.
- Turn off Advanced DNS Services if you have this option under Setup/Internet/Manual.
- Setup DHCP reserved IP addresses for all devices ON the router. Setup/Networking
- Ensure devices are set to auto obtain an IP address.
- Set Firewall settings to Endpoint Independent for TCP and UDP under Advanced/Firewall.
- Enable uPnP and Multi-cast Streaming under Advanced/Networking.

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 had to reboot my Dir 655 because my 2 wireless laptops wouldn't connect to the internet. Once I reset all of my static IP settings in the dlink admin tool the wireless laptops work fine. The problem now is that I can't connect to the internet on the computer that is hard wired into the router. I recall once before having to adjust the TCP/IP settings in the Network settings, but don't remember exactly what it was the I had to do.
I have battling this issue since I bought this router, at least 2 years.

Not sure what other router info you need. All are connected to the internet, but can't see each other on the LAN. We can see each other from time to time. Sharing is allowed. Passwords are shared. I can power off the router and the network will be fine for about a day, then gone again. Workgroups are the same.
A friend of mine has given me a D-link DIR-615 Wireless Router. I only have a copper 10 meg ADSL service. The Router Internet socket is an RJ45, the ADSL Filters are RJ11. Is it possible to get this router to work on an ADSL Filter ? Can you get ADSL Filters with both an RJ45 and BT Phone connection on them, or a converter lead which converts RJ45 to RJ11 to work on the current ADSL filter?

At home I have a wireless access point that I use to connect my laptop #1 to the Internet. On laptop #1 IP address is set to 18.104.22.168. This IP address also Subnet Mask and other addresses are given by my Internet Service Provider. Everything works just fine but lately I bought another laptop (laptop #2) and now my aim is to connect both laptops to the Internet. Unfortunately, I can't make that happen. Only one of my laptops having IP 22.214.171.124 set can connect to the Internet.
So is there any way to have an Internet connection on both of my laptops without having to buy any new equipment?
I'm trying to find the maximum number of mac filters that are supported on the Cisco 4410N access point. The datasheet says that it supports mac filtering but does not indicate the maximum number of filters.
We have a several cisco 4400 wireless controllers and a cisco WLC. All clients autheticate to an AAA server. Acces points are cisco LWAP 1242. Security is PEAP TKIP ms-chap. Machine and user authetication. Settings are pushed out through grou policy. A new user can log on to a laptop (without cached credetials) and get all their network settings....most of the time. Randomly we have laptops that after being restarted, recieve "yourdomain.com is not availalbe" error message. The laptops will work fine for weeks and then random laptops start to get this error. If we wire them into the network, run a gpupdate, they logon fine. Shutdown, unplug, and the wireless works fine again.. I am not sure if this is an ms group policy issue or a wireless issue. Any setting change or a gp setting that I may have missed??
Clients are mostly windows 7 some XP Domain Windows 2008r2
Group policy settings - wifi config settings enabled and configured correctly Always wait for network enabled.allow fast reconnect disabled (was recommended by a cisco tech) Disabled computer passwords for domain about 2 months ago to see if the computers reseting their passwords were an issue.

I'm using parental controls to block all devices in the house from using tumblr. I cannot do this at a device by device level as it is being used on iphones/androids, laptops and desktops.Unfortunately, the way that tumblr works is that it use many URLs for the different pages people set up so it is not just a case of blocking url... - so I'm struggling to work out if I can do this via URL blocking on the router settings. How to do this at router level.
