Parental Control Failure: Cannot block websites through 10.0.0.1
I cannot block websites using the 10.0.0.1 Gateway Admin Tool's parerntal control function on my XB6 Advanced Gateway Modem/Router (Technicolor model CGM4140COM). Sometimes if I restart (i.e. reboot) the Gateway modem/router, that helps to stall an "always blocked" website from loading the first time, but one can rapidly get through with a few more tries, and once one gets through there is freely available access on subsequent tries. Has anyone else run into this problem? Has Xfinity basically stopped supporting 10.0.0.1 as it tries to migrate to the Xfi web portal, so that one is left with just the limited parental controls on that portal? I had slightly better blocking with an Arris model TG3482G Gateway, but there too with persistent attempts (5-10) one could eventually break through the blocks. If you haven't tried this yourself, please follow the "Set up Website Blocking" directions at:
and report your success or failure at getting reliable website blocking of any major site like www.youtube.com. I'm trying to figure out if I'm an outlier or if this is a common failure.
