Block Websites over/on Wifi Network ?

hi guys i have an internet wifi at home and there are about five computers/laptops and mobile phones and other device that is connected to my wifi and i want to find a way where i can block website on my home wifi so none of the the devices can access the sites, the site that i meanly refer is adult sites.

i have tried OpenDNS but my internet provider does not allow 3rd party dns resolvers, so i am looking for a software or something like that which can block adult site meanly.


info about my network and wireless modem
Network = Optus Australia
Modem = NETGEAR CVG824G

i would be glad if anyone could help me out

thanks in advance

There may be something in the router configuration for website blocking...

Edit: I found on the Netgear site that this router does support URL blocking, but the user guide is useless (all Optus branded). Your best bet would be to log in to your router and look for "Website Filtering" or something along those lines.
