WZR-HP-AG300H & DD-WRT Access Restrictions not working
« on: December 14, 2012, 09:56:46 pm »

Hi All,

I have tried to configure to block facebook for a specific IP range. No matter what I try there is no result. 

I am familiar with DD WRT on Linksys routers and with these I have been able to use the same settings to block facebook.

 

I have a WZR-HP-AG300H

The router IS the gateway for my network. 

The router is not the DHCP or DNS server for my network

Internal subnet is 192.168.1.x

 

Here is what I did:

 

  1. "Upgraded' the simple firmware to the DD-WRT firmware from Buffalo : v24SP2-MULTI (06/03/12) std - build 19154
  2. Under Access restrictions, Select enabled Access policy, 
  3. Create a name for the policy
  4. Save
  5. Edit list of clients - leave MAC and Individual IPs blank, add ONE range: 192.168.1.30 - 192.168.1.40
  6. Save, Apply
  7. Back in the Access policy:  Select FILTER, EveryDay and 24 hours
  8. Under "Website blocking by URL address" section, I entered the URL:  facebook.com
  9. Save, "Apply Settings"
  10. Reboot router for good measure
Computers with IPs in this range still can access facebook.
I have verified their IPs (within range) and their gateway (router)
 
As I mentioned, this SAME configuration (external DNS/DHCP, same access control settings) works CORRECTLY on a linksys with DDWRT.
 
I am tempted to try the community editions of DDWRT for this device because it appears this is a bug in the Buffalo version of the firmware?
 
Any assistance (or just confirmation that this is broken) would be great! Thanks in advance.
 
XP.
