      Speed Issue

      I have noticed a side effect when enabling the blocking of sites using security in my Router. Anyone else noticed this and is it normal?

      Without blocking enabled speed tests show approx 14mb, (BB Max, excellent).

      With blocking enabled the results drop to 3 - 4mb.

      I have blocked sites with keywords sex,porn etc.

      Anyone know of a fix for this other than disabling the block?

      Any feedback appreciated

      The delay may be that it slows down to enable it to inspect the site, does your sync speed reduce? or is it just the download speed?
