I own an internet cafe that has 20 computers. Computers get viruses often because most of my customers do not understand the risk in security of most sites like for example, porn sites. What can I do with my wireless router in order to restrict access to some sites I know contains a malware or prevent pornographic sites from getting accessed to.
I want it to be centralized in my WiFi router so that I can make changes on-the-fly.
Restrict Websites Using My WiFi Router
I am sure you already know how to access your router's set up page so I will not teach that anymore. My first suggestion would be to change your DNS settings to use OpenDNS (https://www.opendns.com:443/). Go to your router's LAN settings and set the Primary and Secondary DNS to 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 respectively. Then sign up to OpenDNS and setup your dashboard to filter domains by category. With the dashboard you can set OpenDNS to block pornography sites as well as phishing or ad sites.
Of course for best results, you should set your router as DHCP server and make sure that the network settings of the operating system will not be accessible to your users.
