    What happens when you set filtering to a lower level?

    Are you also using an OpenDNS account that is configured and managed at https://dashboard.opendns.com/ This is not compatible with Netgear LPC, so you have to use only on and disable the other.

    "When I enable parental control with Filtering level  - High, why I cannot access any website including google.com or my own website."

    Better use level "custom" and willingly select only those categories you really want to have blocked.

    Level "high" comprises the categories Adware, Alcohol, Chat, Classifieds, Dating, Drugs, FileStorage, Gambling, Games, Hate/Discrimination, InstantMessaging, P2P/Filesharing, SocialNetworking, VideoSharing, VisualSearchEngines, Weapons, Webmail, PhotoSharing, AdultThemes, Tasteless, Lingerie/Bikini, Proxy/Anonymizer, Sexuality, Nudity, Pornography, Forums/Message boards, where Google and many other popular domains are certainly included, therefore most things are blocked.  You really get what you configure, promised!

    "I did it wil low level and still it has same issue."

    Level "low" should contain only domains belonging to categories Tasteless, Proxy/Anonymizer, Sexuality, Pornography.  If you change the settings, you must also flush your two caches, else your settings changes do not take effect immediately, and you think you're still on level "high".

    Well, if you're happy that way, why do you enable LPC at all?  Just to come here complaining?  ;-)

    It's not like that I love to complain.  I asking is there any way we can keep parental option enable and use internet not going in certain website.

    That is supposed to be how it works. There are a number of things that could cound account for this behavior, but if you don't respond to all questions put to you it makes it very difficult to figure out what is going on.

    To repeat: Are you also using an OpenDNS account that is configured and managed at https://dashboard.opendns.com/ This is not compatible with Netgear LPC, so you have to use only on and disable the other.

    Also, are you using the latest version of the firmware available for your router model?

    Not sure what exactly you could mean by "not going in certain website", but my message above should answer your question, and you should now know what to do:

    If you want to know anything else, you must be much more specific about your desire.
