Belkin N wireless routers include a parental control feature that can filter access to websites on your local network. Belkin routers come with a free six months of the parental control feature, which can filter websites based on content categories. Each time a user loads a website, the router contacts Belkin's parental control servers and gets information about the website's rating. If the website is filtered by your policy, an error page appears. The error page states that the website was blocked and provides a reason. You can also use the parental control to filter specific websites.
