    So, I bought a WRT54GS to try and deploy parental controls in our office.
    I double-checked w/ Linksys before opening the box that I could configure machines by their MAC address, which is true -I didn't want to load the ActiveX login component on each machine.

    However once I got to configuring my machines, I ran into a problem. I was only allowed to configure 8 network devices. When I attempted to add my 9th network device, I received an error.
    "You have already added the maximum allowed number of device bindings. You must delete an entry from teh list before you can add another one."

    I contacted Linksys Support (chat) -can't stand the phone support...
    After about 90 minutes, they confirmed that the Parental Controls would only support 8 network devices. Needless to say, I will be taking it back...
