Security - Blocked Sites

Hello I am trying to block sites on my router but is not working. I have added multiple keywords to block sites but it continues to not block these key words such as free porn.

You may want to look at circle on the R8000P it has more features in blocking these types of sites.

No, I don't want circle.  I SHOULDN'T HAVE TO PAY EXTRA TO DO WHAT A ROUTER SHOULD DO FOR THE MONEY I ALREADY PAID.

 

The "blocked sites" feature does not appear to work.  When I add keywords or IP addresses, I should not be able to still access the sites.  However, adding keywords for "youtube", "youtube.com", "www.youtube.com", and even "https://www.youtube.com" will not prevent clients of the router from accessing youtube.

 

This is broken functionality, and it needs to be fixed immediately by NETGEAR.

 

Circle.

 

SMDH.

By the way, NETGEAR, I will be spamming this site and others with this issue until I either have (a) suitable instructions on how this feature is supposed to work, or (b) you fix the feature so that sites can be blocked.

 

Also, the "schedule" option does not appear to work as there doesn't appear to be any way to add dates to start or stop blocking.

 

This is unacceptable.
