Netgear has collaborated with OpenDNS to release Live Parental Controls in select wireless routers and gateways. Live Parental Controls enables families and small businesses to restrict access to inappropriate websites on all Internet-connected devices via the router, with filtering for more than 50 categories of content.

"Netgear chose to collaborate with OpenDNS to integrate their award-winning filtering technology into our routers, as we consider it the most effective and all-encompassing solution on the market today," said Jonathan Wu, Netgear’s product line manager for consumer wireless LAN products, in a prepared statement.

Rather than install and manage parental control software on individual computers, customers set the rules on the router, which can be managed remotely. The network-based parental controls protect PCs, mobile wireless devices such as the iPod Touch, and gaming consoles such as the Wii, when connected to the wireless home network. The Live Parental Controls feature is now available with the purchase of a new Netgear Wireless-N 300 Router and will be available on additional select Wireless-N routers and DSL gateways in coming months.
