    I have a DLink Broadband Router and have to block internet
    access on several computers. The problem is when I do this
    I cannot download updates for Windows. Is there a better
    way to still be able to download updates and keep those
    computers from accessing any other part of the internet.
    The only connection that is to be allowed is accessing our
    companies website on the net. Any help would be
    appreciated.

    Thanx

  2. You must allow Windows Update access to ports 80 and 443. Read the
    router's manual to see how this is done .
