- Setting up Website Filters on a Belkin router
The Website Filters of your Belkin router filter out unwanted websites on your network through convenient filtering options. Choose the category that fits your web filtering needs. This helps eliminate the burden of manually selecting and entering many unwanted websites for your network.
This article will guide you on how to set up Website Filters on your Belkin router.
On your computer, open a web browser such as Internet Explorer® or Safari®.
In the address bar, enter "192.168.2.1" and press [Enter] on your keyboard.
NOTE: The Belkin router's default IP address is 192.168.2.1. If you changed your router's IP Address, use that instead. If you are not sure, check your router’s IP Address by clicking here for instructions.
Click Login on the upper right corner of the web-based setup page.
NOTE: If this doesn't look like your router's web-based setup page, it might be using the Dashboard interface. For Dashboard instructions on configuring the Parental Controls feature, click here.
Once prompted to log in, enter your router's Password then click Submit.
QUICK TIP: If you have not yet updated this password, leave the Password field blank then click Submit.
