[DSL] Netgear 755044 - Defining custom firewalls
I am currently using a netgear b90-755044-15 router which was given to me when I signed up with frontier. I changed my firewall setting to custom security as I wish to block a few websites on my network. Every time I try to enter a rule and click save it does not seem to actually save it.
For example if I wanted to block Netflix I would enter the following under the add rules section:
Rule Name: Netflix
Source Address: 184.108.40.206 Subnet: 255.255.255.255
Destination Address: 192.168.254.0 Subnet: 255.255.254.0
One I click save, the page just refresh but does not actually save the rule. I can't figure out what I am doing wrong. Perhaps my syntax is incorrect? Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.
There are several other things that are broken in firmware for this modem.
Try setting up rules based on port number and it does not work either. You have to create a custom rule. We will just have to wait for frontier, netgear, or a good firmware programmer to fix it.
