SBG7600AC2: IP Filtering Setup

« Go Back


How do I block local devices from accessing the Internet on my SBG7600AC2 gateway?
The SBG7600AC2 includes an advanced IP Filtering option to define which local devices will be denied access to the Wide Area Network (WAN).  IP address filters will need to be configured to block Internet traffic to specific network devices on the Local Area Network (LAN) by entering the starting and ending IP addresses range.  IP Filtering is not enabled by default.  This document describes how to configure IP Filtering.

Configure IP Filtering
  1. Launch a web browser, such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Safari.  Enter into the address box, and press the Enter key.  The Login page will appear.

    NOTE: A security or private risk alert may appear on the web browser advising users to proceed with caution when accessing the Web Manager.  There is no risk in proceeding to the Web Manager. For instructions to by-pass the alert screen, refer to article # 18181 - Alert Message for Web Manager Access.

  2. On the Login page, enter admin in the User Name field.
  3. Enter password or a customized password in the Password field.

    NOTE: When using the default password to login, it may be required to set a unique password to proceed to the Web Manager.  For assistance with Web Manager Access, refer to article # 18386 – SBG7600AC2: Web Manager Access.

  4. Click the Apply button.  The System Basic Setup window will appear.
