    Page search 10:04 am, the comment by John Carosella. Whether his "workaround" accomodates your version I couldn't say.

    Most secure way I know of is to use a router that will manage net access via mac addresses. Mine does this, and my kids mac addresses are entered. I then use another spot in the router where I can designate 40 allowed websites for anyone with an access rule in place. Works very nice and is pretty easy, if your router supports it. My kids are still pretty young though. I doubt a teenager would like to be limited to only a few different websites.
