    I am trying to set an Internet Access policy in the office, which need an access restriction management and internet usage monitoring.

    1. Access restriction
    I have been trying to use WRT54G's "access restriction" feature, but somehow it doesn't work at all.
    Here's my current Internet Access policy setup..
    Status: enable
    Enter policy name: noporn
    PCs: (range from to
    Allow: [thicked]
    Days: Everyday
    Times: 24 Hours
    Blocked services: none
    Website blocking by URL Address: (all taken from the banlist)
    Website blocking by keyword: (all related words have been included)

    But still...I can open all websites on my blocklist as they're not being blocked. Does this website blocking really work, or it's just a gimmick?

    The only thing that work is if I put "deny" with days/times set. But if I use this option, the website/service blocking parts will be greyed out. Any advise....?!?!?

    2. Administration Log for activity monitoring.
    I'm thinking to retrieve the data from log list to a networked shared drive (could be on Linux or Win machines). Has anyone ever tried to do this?
