    Question What does "keyword" mean in the firewall instructions?

    Hi! The firewall page of my NetGear DGN2200v2 Router says that you can block "a keyword or domain name" on the firewall block page. Do they mean a keyword in a URL, or anywhere in the page or other object?

    Thanks.

    From RodeRunner's link:

    Some examples of keyword application follow:
    If the keyword XXX is specified, the URL http://www.badstuff.com/xxx.html is blocked.
    If the keyword .com is specified, only websites with other domain suffixes (such as .edu or
    .gov) can be viewed.
    Enter a period (.) as to block all Internet browsing access.
    In other words, you're saying that it sounds like a keyword is a string which will cause a URL to be blocked if it appears anywhere in the URL, and that it's at least a reasonable guess that this works the same way in DGN2200v2 as it does in DGN2000?

    Do I have it right?

    Thanks again.

    Its something I have never used. If I want to block something I would do it with OpenDNS.
