LAN & WAN Reviews


Like the Parental Control and Firewall menus, the Reporting Menu (Figure 22) has a global enable/disable. The reporting is very boiled down, but I think a lot of tbe DSD-150's target buyers will like the feature.

Days that have blocked content attempts are highlighted in red while those without blocked content attempts are in green. Click on a day, the counters at right will display that day's "Child", "Youth" and "Adult hits. The "View Report" button opens a report stored at, that can't be tampered with (famous last words).

The thought here is that even if your DSD-150 were hacked, you can use this report to look at say, the five days you left the teenagers by themselves, and see what sites this client went to. Of course, if you leave your client security settings at low (remember my debugging tip?) then the DSD-150 can be removed from the LAN while you are out, and the reports will not include the web browsing that happened while the DSD-150 was removed.

Comparing the reporting web page seen with the latest firmware (1.0.3) with the reporting web page in the manual (Figure 23) it appears that D-Link has pulled some functionality. The Reporting page in the manual (gotta love "Logged In: Joe Tester") has three sub-menus that I was unable to find a way to reproduce with the evaluation unit.

From the manual, it appears that the DSD-150 has/had the ability to have log files e-mailed, some kind of device log (would be great if this showed when the DSD-150 was disconnected and reconnected), and an "accountability partner" option. I've heard people set up accountability partners to keep themselves from straying, but this is the first I've seen of a filtering device supporting such an arrangement.
