    Hi, I have a kid who is in puberty and has since discovered some, to me very disturbing web pages, those that arrearage S&M fetish parties and various sick stuff. Now I can't get to his laptop/pc because he has them password protected and is very introverted and i can't talk any sense into him... Once I had a look in his history and well had to take some medication to calm down, he also discovered my intrusion of his privacy and I can't risk him locking me out even more so I can't install any parental control software to his PCs...

    So my idea was get a firmware for the linksys wrt54gl that has parental controls, blocking specific web url and most important i need an activity log so i can see witch web sites is he visiting, so something like address resolve for specific MACs...

    So here is the rundown of what I need
    a firmware that can do the following
    1. List all activity for specific MAC addresses
    2. has the ability to block specific URLs
    3. a packet sniffer would be also nice
    4. parental controls are a plus but since we aren't in the USA/UK area there aren't any products covering sites in croatia...

    Hmm i understand you problem. :(
    So. Quite usable firmware for you should be the DD-WRT.
    There is posibility of "Website Blocking by URL Address" or "Website Blocking by Keyword".
    But i can't tell you now what is the result of this filtering. If it work or not.
    Anyway i will try it for you and let you know.
