RAX50 Security/Firewall Access (NOT ENABLED)

Would anyone know if there is any way to access the Security or Firewall settings on the RAX50 Router?

For three reasons why I am asking...

1.Whenever I log into the router, I see that the "Security" is not accessible and says "NOT ENABLED" nor can I click on this item although the HTTPS is setup to access the router, WPA2/WPA3 are setup on the WiFi channels, no other device can access the WiFi unless a MAC address has been entered, and I am able to block some websites.


2. I am getting a lot of DOS Fraggle attacks from all sources on Ports 2190 & 443. I have several devices connected to the router using WiFi and Ethernet. Most of the devices are turned off most of the day or are not connected but I am still seeing a lot of the Fraggle Attacks occurring all day. I have reset, restarted and reconfigured both the modem and the router. I have the CM2000.


3. I read the RAX50 manual, and it says that the firewall is built-in.

Also, I am unable to block some websites like disneyplus.com - It is listed in the "Block sites containing these keywords or domain names:" section but users on the network are still able to access the website and or domain. Other sites (hulu.com) are successfully blocked.


So what gives with this router?

Access control is unable to block HTTPS websites, if you want to do that, please use smart parental control.
