    Hi there,
    I want to set up my WRT54G to deny internet access during working hours, however I want to allow access to a number of web sites at all times.

    I dont think any of the user interfaces would support this directly, but I was hoping that I could edit some IPTables configuration files through SSH perhaps to enable the hack?

    Any tips appreciated.

    On another issue, will my access restriction policies be affected by the fact that I have 2 layers of nat?
    I have my DSL modem which serves an ip to my WRT which then serves ips to the LAN.
    I've tried sample filters and the POP3 one works whereas the HTTP one (port 80) does not.
    Could the fact that the http packets would be arriving to the WAN side of the WRT at a different port than 80 effect the filtering?
    This wouldnt explain why the POP3 filtering worked though.

    On allowing certain websites, surely it could be done with some functionality analogous to the code that denies access to specified sites based on what's entered into the form.

    access restrictions

    Removed my outer NAT layer & still can't disable http alone.

    Anyone got any ideas on enabling just a few web sites?
