How to block a website on your modem

Website blocking allows you to stop a device connected to your network from accessing specific websites of your choice.
Modem Advanced Step 1-4

1.  Connect a device, such as a computer or tablet, to the internet through WiFi or using an Ethernet cable connected to your modem.

2.  Open a web browser and type into the web address field.

3.  Log in to the modem's online user interface (Modem GUI) using your Administrator Username and Administrator Password. Unless you have changed the default settings, you can find this information on the modem's sticker. Note that these are different from your wireless SSID and security key.

4.  Select "Advanced Setup."

5.  Select "Website Blocking" in the left sidebar. 

6.  Follow the steps in the Website Blocking menu:

Step 1: Select the device you want to schedule from the dropdown list, or manually enter the device's IP address.

Step 2: Enter the website(s) you want to block. You can add multiple sites, one at a time, and they will appear on the "Blocked Website List" at the bottom. You can also click to "Remove" a blocked site from the list.

Step 3: When you're finished adding or removing websites, click "Apply" to save your changes.
