Hello, I am new to DDWRT. I have it installed on my Linksys WRT150N router. I want to use it to block websites. My wife just got admitted to a psych hospital for a plan of committing suicide. Now, I want to block such searches and sites via the router so she can not do such things from any device on the network, so how do I do this? Thank you very much.

Use opendns. Follow the wiki to add the script to your firewall to make sure it can't be overridden by the local computer. Opendns has built in filtering and can blacklist or whitelist websites. I use it at home to prevent my kids from accessing websites I don't approve. Here is the link:
