WRT54G & explicit web site allow (by MAC)

Discussion in 'Cisco/Linksys Wireless Routers' started by cromrell, Apr 1, 2005.

    I am network admin for office network (approx 80 pcs).
    I would like to use existing WRT54G router 'Access Restrictions' to limit approx 15 pcs to a specific list of websites (5-10 allowed sites).
    The WRT54G 'Access Restictions' allows me to explicitly 'block' sites (4), but does not allow me to explicitly 'allow' sites.

    Q1. Should I upgrade to WRT54GS for Parental Controls features?
    Q2. Is it possible to do explicit allow with WRT54G w/ alternative firmware (w/o loosing my current Linksys features)?
    Q3. Should I leave my router alone & use some other alternative (Proxy Server, Local Application, etc...)

    Thanks for your consideration
