Since Google searching hasn't helped, I thought I'd ask here. We recently upgraded to Gigatown Fibre and got the HG659b mode from Spark. We've also been using Getflix for DNS settings, but I can't for the life of me figure out static routing on this thing. The HG630b that they accidentally sent us was fine, but yeah.

This is the "add static route" part, and it's all straight-forward until I get to the interface, as there's no LAN, LAN+Wireless or bridging option. If I make a new connection in the "Internet Settings" and set it to bridging, the static route option brings up the error "Interface type must be route".

Any help would be brilliant.

Edit: I should point out that I've tried the current (shown) interface as well as the other disconnected ones to no avail. "ping" still goes through.

Ah, it appears my question had already been answered previously but never appeared in my searching.

In short, the parental controls URL filter works on the DNS addresses.
