OK, Ive tried k9 and now covenant eyes and both of these make my computer run super wonky. The other thing is that I'm the primary user of this computer(and my husband was mainly surfing porn at his place of business which he owns!) but he asked for it and I'm willing to do it, but this is driving me nuts. Anybody else have another suggestion? Also if there is anyone who would be willing to walk me through the router block (that is supposed to be SOOOOO easy) I'd rather do that because it would also work on the wireless network.

Hi GH,

I have tried many of the filter products out there and the one that has the least "wonky" effect on the computers is BSecure Online. It is affordable and uses a small amount of resources.

As for the router-based solution, you will need to log into your router. Once you have the login credentials (IP address of the router, username, password), message me and I will talk you through it.

Yup, I have used K9 and it does really mess up a computer. Strings has it right, you need access to your router, a username and password. If you got the router from a service like At&t or Verizon, you can call them and they will tech support you through it. If you do not like the tech you get, tell them you want to speak to someone else, right now.

Know this GH, even the best blockers can miss "art" and pictures without captions, please be aware of this when you set this up, the best in the business will miss 15% or more of the porn out there.

Do your best, support as you can, and make sure you know it is exactly what was needed,
Sam

Use xxxchurch.com's X3Watch. Has made all the difference in the world for my son.

Peace,

John

I discovered that the public blog sites are porn havens. While I had done a decent job of blocking most of the porn with BSecure and OpenDNS, I discovered a lot of porn in the history (thanks to my son). He was using a blog site to find porn. I could have blocked the blog sit ebut then it would have meant blocking all the blogs on the site and my wife reads quite a few of them. so, without going to the premium (paid) version of OpenDNs, I found that managing blog sites is difficult to impossible if you want to block some but not all.

Hilarious! Ended up taking covenant eyes off because I had some stuff that had to be done on the computer and it was messing with the browser. Today I try to go to a site and it says opening DNS blocker, Blocked Domain. I put that in a long time ago and didn't htink I did it right (even though I followed the directions very carefully). Turns out I did a great job and I have the blocker anyway!

Don't the major IPs (AT&T etc..) offer IP based premium blocking?
I thought that was what restaurants and such use on their WiFi.

That is a great idea I never thought of. I'll look into that too
