I'll set that up ASAP!
1. OpenDNS is a free website you can sign up for, redirect domains wherever, and then point your PS3/router to use that for your DNS records.
Good! I need more options from my router than I'm seeing. I'll have to check and see if this router is compatible.
3. www.dd-wrt.com | Unleash Your Router
| Unleash Your Router It's a Linux based firmware that gives you way more options then the stock firmware. You should look into if it's capable. Plenty of good articles of how to install and do different functionality on that link.
That sounds like a winner winner chicken dinner as well. Thanks guys! Edit: Is the free service sufficient enough for the task at hand in this thread? 25 domains for free so should work right?
OpenDNS isn't a program, it's a service ^^ Sign up on their website, enter your current ip in your settings, and their's an option to block domains. To use it, change you ps3's dns servers to the openDNS ones. (They should be at the bottom right of the home page I believe).
Got OpenDNS setup now with appropriate Sony domains blocked!
My Westell 6100 from Verizon has custom firewall rules which is what I used, I just have to be sure that the static IP never changes on the target PS3. There are 2 other PS3's on this network that still play online, so I can't really redirect the domains without somehow splitting up the network.
Another interesting thing the 6100 does is custom DNS. Even though I can't redirect the domains ALL the time I still found a good use for it, which is ridiculously large game updates. I download them manually onto my file/media/whatever server so when a game like GT5 is played on a different console, all I need to do is fire up wamp and change our home domain to playstation.net, then the update downloads at gigabit speed.
