Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Consider some of these suggestions from a Web search for open source content filtering.

I have heard of Untangle but do not know how effective it really is. Maybe someone else can weigh-in on this topic.

    Hello, Just to make my share. OpenDNS is a good starting point to what you're trying to do. It provides monitoring (no only restricted to WiFi clients) and it provides ways of blocking what you want to block. My personal experience with Untangle was very good. It provides you all of the above and much more. This needs a dedicated machine to run the software. Remember that your users should not be able to change network configuration - IP address, DNS, Proxy server - and also shouldn't be able to install software. Tell us if you find this info useful.
