    Hi everyone,

    Ok, this situation is like this:
    My wife's work found out I'm a "computer guy" and they want me to help them with their network. They use a WRT54G with standard firmware (I'm planning on DD-WRT) to route <10 computers, some wired, some wireless. The managers are getting digruntled about the "underlings" using the internet for personal purposes, so they want to block it for their computers (either by IP address or MAC address, I imagine).
    Here's the catch: their in-house tracking database is accessed over the internet (it's a common web application for 3 different locations).

    So what I'm trying to devise is this:
    "Underling" Policy:
    Allow www.theirwebapplication.com
    Block everything else.

    Manager Policy:
    Allow everything.

    I was looking at the basic "Access Restrictions" but it doesn't look like there is a facility to "block all pages, except...". It felt more like you could only say "block everything" or "allow everything, except...

    I started looking into nocat and chillispot, but this just isn't the proper use-case for that. I'm sure that the resolution in something easy with routing tables or something, but I'm not sure where to start.

    I've got DD-WRT working at home, some I'm not a complete newb to this stuff, but I can't seem to find a way to do what I described above. I want to keep it simple, because I don't want to support this large, complicated thing -- I'm just doing them a favor to begin with...
