    I am running firmware V1.00.08 on the above and I want to block all port ranges bar 25, 53, 80, 110 and 443.

    As you can enter 2 Server Blocks per policy, I figured that I would have to add multiple policys e.g.

    Policy A - Block 1 to 24, 26 to 52
    Policy B - Block 54 to 79, 81 to 109

    etc

    In order to test that multiple policies can be applied to the same mac address, i set up PA to block 80 to 80 and PB to block 110 to 110, but only the first enabled policy is enforced?!?

    I switched the above example around and still only the first policy is enforced.

    Am I doing this wrong or is there something wrong??

    Cheers

    I sent this e-mail.....

    I have just purchased a WAG54GS router with built in firewall. I want
    to set up multiple Internet Access Policies which affect the same pc,
    but only the first enabled policy works.

    The reason I want to do this is so I can block all port activity except
    25. 53. 80. 110 and 443. As each policy only allows 2 Blocked Services,
    I would have to block 1 to 24 and 26 to 52 in policy A, 54 to 79 and 81
    to 109 in Policy B etc etc

    I have been testing this concept by setting policy A to block 80 and
    policy B to block 110, but while policy A was enabled, policy B wasn't
    working and I could send and receive mail. I swapped these examples
    around and still only the first enabled policy is enforced.

    Is this a know bug, or can you not apply multiple policies to the same
    MAC Address.

    to support...@linksys.com, and they replyed with this...

    >From the details that you have provided, you were planning to block

    ports on a computer. The following categories work independently even
    if another is created:

    a. Website Blocking by by URL Address
    b. Website Blocking by Keyword
    c. Blocked Services

    It is not possible to block more than 2 services. Multiple policies are
    allowed, however, this would only apply with regard to computers
    accessing the Internet.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    and I feel like they have confirmed that what I'm doing is correct, but
    not offered a solution to my problem.

    I think I'll take this router back as it obviously doesn't do what is
    required.
