I am not extremely tech savvy when it comes to networking, like most people. Yes, I too am looking to block porn from all devices connected to my network regardless if I have physical administrator control of them or not. Hard wired and wireless. Yes, I have looked all over the internet and this website to find the solution. Opendns cannot do this alone that is understood. The solution for me appears to be a combination of Opendns and a proxy server that intercepts Web searches and automatically edits them to be safe search = strict. However, this setup seems very daunting for me to try and figure out alone and requires a lot of money. The money isn't the issue though. I have Uverse. So, I will need to purchase a NetGear wireless router with Opendns already compatible. (my preference). Then I will insert that between my computers and the Uverse gateway. Disable my Uverse wifi, configure the opendns parental controls and good to go. EXCEPT, what about the google images,etc... I now need to make one of my existing computers or buy a new dedicated computer to be my proxy server. Then I need to set it up and configure it somehow with the already existing opendns configuration above. Which is the best and least expensive way to go about this? How on earth is out accomplished in an easy to follow instruction? So, my main question is can someone with the know how please post instructions, advise and recommendations for how to get all this setup in my scenario and without Uverse for other people? I see everyone saying it can't be done with opendns alone,but everyone wants it to be. Everyone seems to come here looking for the answer. So, could someone please post the solution instructions in detail to help everyone out and put it to rest? I am just a parent like most trying to help my child grow up without porn in their face 24/7. It's not like when I was a kid the only porn you would see is if the house builders left magazines at the job site or your parents weren't home late at night and you had adult movie channels to watch. Even that was soft porn. Nothing like kids are subjected to nowadays. Thank you!
