Access Restrictions allow you to create a set of rules that govern internet access by machines on your network. You can create rules that govern access by individual machine, time-of-day, traffic type, URL and keywords.

You can create up to 10 sets of rules, called a policy. A policy can contain multiple individual rules (such as denying a particular machine access to a particular web site). Policies are processed in order. This is an important item to remember when creating Deny policies. For example, if Policy #1 is a Deny policy that restricts all internet access for your entire network, no machines will be able to access the internet regardless of any Allow policies you might have in spots 2-10.

A good rule of thumb is, place your global Deny policies in high numbered slots, and place your individual Allow policies in low numbered slots. For example, to create policies that allow only specified machines access to the internet, create the following:

Policy 1: Allow MAC addresses X, Y and Z access to the internet.

Policy 10: Deny IP address - access to the internet.

Create/Edit a Policy

  1. Select the policy number (1-10) in the drop-down menu.
  2. Enter a name in the Enter Profile Name field.
  3. Click the Edit List of PCs button.
  4. On the List of PCs screen, specify PCs by IP address or MAC address. Enter the appropriate IP addresses into the IP fields. If you have a range of IP addresses to filter, complete the appropriate IP Range fields. Enter the appropriate MAC addresses into the MAC fields.
  5. Click the Apply button to save your changes. Click the Cancel button to cancel your unsaved changes. Click the Close button to return to the Filters screen.
  6. If you want to block the listed PCs from Internet access during the designated days and time, then keep the default setting, Disable Internet Access for Listed PCs. If you want the listed PCs to be able to access the Internet during the designated days and time, then click the radio button next to Enable Internet Access for Listed PCs.
  7. Set the days when access will be filtered. Select Everyday or the appropriate days of the week.
  8. Set the time when access will be filtered. Select 24 Hours, or check the box next to From and use the drop-down boxes to designate a specific time period.
  9. Click the Add to Policy button to save your changes and active it.
  10. To create or edit additional policies, repeat steps 1-9. (Remember - policies are processed in order! You should create your global Deny policies last, and individual Allow policies first)


To delete an Internet Access Policy, select the policy number and click the Delete button


To see a summary of all the policies, click the Summary button. The Internet Policy Summary screen will show each policy's number, Policy Name, Days, and Time of Day. To delete a policy, click its box, and then click the Delete button. Click the Close button to return to the Filters screen.

Filtered Internet Port Range

To filter PCs by network port number, select Both, TCP, or UDP, depending on which protocols you want to filter. Then enter the port numbers you want to filter into the port number fields. PCs connected to the Router will no longer be able to access any port number listed here. To disable a filter, select Disable.
