    Morning guys,

    Just got a WAG200G and set everything up and generally happy with the router.

    Only problems that i have come across is that when trying to set up URL blocking to do a test of policies on the router, it doesn't seem to work.

    I am basically trying to block hotmail.com and I also tried to block login.live.com as well but even after rebooting the router; I can still access the URL's with no problems. I have not tried to add wildcards (*.hotmail.com or *.live.com) as I figure that if I can;t get literals to work then wildcards won't either.

    I've attached a screen shot of the config so that people can see what I'm doing right or wrong; any advice is welcome.

    Is your PC:s IP- or MAC-address included in the "List of PCs"?

    Hi Falconetti,

    No, the way that I interpreted the screen was that i could block access to the URL without doing this. I'll add my MAC and see what happens; the more I think about it the more sense it makes when you mention it.
