This is an invalid solution
Not sure why this thread is locked, so I can't even explain why it's wrong.... ????
I have both telus and shaw hooked up in my home. My Shaw modem with built-in router blocks websites just fine, and works instantly. The telus modem with built-in router doesn't block any websites at all. Has nothing to do with SSL as indicated in the above thread...
This is an actual problem that needs to be fixed. This is ridiculous.
This is not a question, this is a statement. The website blocking feature does NOT work. Fix it.
One particular site for example you can test with is https://discordapp.com/.
Shaw works, Telus doesn't...
And please, unlock the previous thread. Why would you lock the thread. Whoever locked it clearly didn't verify the solution was accurate, or they just simply know nothing about this.
Wow, I researched this problem further and found people complaining to the manufacturer of the modem directly on their website.
Here's a link to the manufacturer's website/forum:
The manufacturer is refusing to help anyone saying Telus doesn't want them to help because Telus wants to do all the tech support on their own, so the manufacturer doesn't want to be liable for breaking some agreement between them...
Pathetic that Telus won't fix this. 2 years and now heading into 2021 and still Telus won't fix this. Just keep pumping their marketing and on boarding new customers without fixing what's broken. This is a major problem, all these sites were blocked fine with Shaw and not a single one is blocked with Telus.
SOLVED! (I hope) just spent 2 hours on hold to get through to tech. NSFW sites can be blocked and managed via the Telus Wifi App (not the modem) you'll need to download the app and manage the sites via the app. Apparently this is only needed for the T3200M (black modem) and the new white modem (fibre) does not require this.
Did you try: https://www.google.com/search?q=Telus+Wifi+App&hl=en ? Telus only has the one My Wifi app currently. I don't recall seeing the ability to block websites in it though.
