Do _all_ routers with Genie support live parental controls?

I need a new ADSL router and my old (non-ADSL)

Netgear router had Netgear live parental controls (lpc)

- the only internet filtering solution I've experienced which

genuinely works across all devices.

 

Live parental controls isn't listed on many current products, but Genie is.

 

The manual for Genie says that you can configure lpc;

does this mean that all routers that support Genie support live parental controls?

 

Many thanks.

Hi @aclow,

 

The model numbers that you have indicated all support the NETGEAR Genie program and the LPC feature. You may refer to the link below for the complete list of NETGEAR Genie supported devices.

There are older devices that may work with the NETGEAR Genie but may not have the LPC feature.

@DexterJB

 

DGND7300, DGND4000, D6400, D6000, D6400, D6200, D3600.

Basically, all the DSL wifi routers that suit a medium to large home.

 

OpenDNS-based Live Parental Controls in the router is essential - it's the only content filtering solution I trust for my family.

 

The D6400 doesn't mention Genie or LPC, the D3600 mentions LPC but not Genie, the D6000 mentions both and the rest just mention Genie.

The instructions for Genie mention LPC, but it's not clear to me whether that's supported on all Genie installations, hence the question.
