Thanks, was searching and found linksys v4 with tomato firmware (strange huh) that is supposed to have a lot of features like blocking specific addresses. I'lll have to see if will point to the right dns.
A linux box with 2 cards may be able to configure what I need too, or perhaps a small linux appliance?

Thanks, Mark

You may need to update the firmware on your router (if this is considered a
significant bug by Belkin) or replace it with a device that supports DD-WRT or
similar open software that will give you more control. Commodity devices are
designed to minimize support calls, so handling of such edge cases as not using
the ISP DNS settings are relegated to check boxes on a review form. (Whether it
actually works is seldom verified by a reviewer.)  --Don

Be well - or at least have interesting symptoms!
