Basic web site blocking

Here’s a new video that I’ve just uploaded to YouTube that will show you two simple methods of blocking web sites.

The first method is simply to use your local router and a keyword. The second is to use http://www.opendns.com. OpenDNS is a far more elegant solution and allows you to block a whole range of sites as well as protect against phishing attacks. Simply create an OpenDNS account, attach an IP range to the account and then you can set up custom DNS settings. It is really great for home and business users.
