    Network filtering software and questions?

    Okay, so I have a Linksys E1200 with DD-WRT big and apparently blocking websites does not work for https.

    So I wanted to try any network filtering tools out there but I am completely unsatisfied with any of them.

    I have seven devices connected wirelessly. None wired.
    I can wire one if required.

    I want to disable file uploading and email sites on 5 of these PCs.

    How do I achieve this?

    Won't using OpenDNS filter out all 5 PCs rather than just one?

    Please help.

    Not sure that router has port blocking by MAC address which would definitely work for the email.
    Maybe OpenDNS will do what you want:

    Thing is, cheaper routers will have fewer options even with modded firmware, only so much firmware memory and CPU instructions available in the router. Have to buy a mid to upper class router to have real control over what devices have access to what on the network.
