Default What is the best router for blocking porn and porn related URLs/sites?

Good day

I'm a father of three minor children who have access to the web, because I think that is positive, though I do not want them at all to see websites with adult content.

After a vast search, I really can't find an effective method! I bought Anti-Porn parental control software from tuEagles but it's really not good as it blocks sites which have nothing to do with erotic issues, just because they mention at some part the word "sex"!

Is there any server on the web to which I can link my router for adult content blocking?
Which router do you suggest me to effectively block URLs or adult content sites?

Thank you so much.
I'm really desperate for your help!

Hi Joao, welcome to the forum.

This is a forum for woodworking routers, not computer routers.

I have moved your post to the Lobby, on the off chance that someone can help you....

No personal experience with it, but isn't NetNanny the usual method?

The router can't block sites but you can use your computer Network settings to do so or there is a lot of third party software that can. Check sites such as CNET, PCWorld and etc for help.

actually depending on the router you can use it to block porn Cisco Linksys routers come standard with a parental controls option. however, they are on the high end side. but speaking as both someone with an IT background and three grown children setting up access times and actually monitoring what your children are doing on line will be more helpful in the long run. do not think a product like a firewall think TV will fulfill the needs of a parent!
