      Trying to block Twitter through my router, but it is still available.

      Hi,

      I am trying to setup a schedule to block certain websites on my router. Every site I have tried to block seems fine except Twitter. It doesn't matter what keyword I put in, it will not block. I have tried single words, full URL's and also the ip address.

      My router is a Sagem F@st2504n. Firmware version is, 5.23.1a4N

      Any help appreciated.

      Johnny

      It may be worth registering with OpenDNS (then using these settings in your router as the DNS servers). From your DNS account, you can then block access to sites, however I'm not sure if you can do this on a schedule.
