    I am using tomato v 1.27 on a Linksys wrt54gv2

    I have created the rule and enabled it.
    I am trying to block certain sites using key words. Such as "google" as a test.
    I have set up to apply to all Computers/devices
    I have set it up to All day and Every day.
    Even if I put a check in the box to Block All Internet Access. Save and reset I can still browse anything I want.

    Even after the rule is applied I can do a tracert to google or whatever domain I am trying to block and follow the route from my router to my dsl modem to my isp blah blah blah.. all the way to the site.

    When I do ipconfig I see my gateway as my router.

    I have spent many hours reading and searching with no answers. Please do not reply with "use opendns"" as an option. I would like to have the router do what I want it to and not use another service. It kinda defeats the purpose of even having it set up on my network using an outside service.

    Thank you

    Can you post a snapshot of your restriction rule? I just tested a few examples and everything seemed to work fine here.

    I have also selected block all access as well. Nothing changes.

    OK. I copied your screen exactly, hit SAVE and google was blocked for all clients.

    Telnet to your router, issue "iptables --list" - and you should be able to see the rule.

    Just a thought - the router does have direct access to the web? i.e. it isn't double-nat'd ? You use the router to do PPPOE to your ADSL modem?

    Ok so here is where we are at this point. I didn't have my dsl modem bridged. It is now.

    From the Overview screen in tomato I can see that my wrt54g is connected to my isp. I can use the tools within the router and ping or tracert just fine to google. It seems the problem I am running into now is the ports on my LAN are not talking to the port on the WAN. Same with Wireless. Nothing on the LAN sees the WAN side of the router. Can you share with me how do do this?

    Problem solved. AND access restrictions working. Thank you.

    Routing settings were not set as gateway.
