Family Filter on PB (DNS settings)
I am giving my 8yo a PB but I want to see if I can filter her browser so that she only sees the safe internet sites. Ie. I dont want her to access FaceBook, etc. I have found a free product that will allow me to do this but I need to be able to change the DNS settings on the PB so that it uses a specific one. Problem is I cant find it.
I could set the DNS on the wifi router but then it will block all the devices in the house. Does anyone know where I can specify the DNS servers on the PB?

you can set a static IP to the specific playbook (with the router). maybe you can edit the DNS settings with that too. that it only will filter that IP.Developer of; Crackberry Forums Reader app -> Crackberry Forum App (NON-ANDROID)

Thanks Jeroen for the response. I dont think it will work with my router since the DNS settings will be global which means that all devices will get blocked. I just want to block that specific PlayBook. Using my router I have not seen a way of specifying DNS server on a per device use case.

Follow the below:
Go to settings --> Wifi --> Saved Networks --> Click your wifi network --> Uncheck 'Automatically Obtain IP Address' --> fill in the IP address, subnet, default gateway and DNS fields
I recommend you set the DNS globally on the router though. Your 8yo may connect (inadvertently) to a guest/unsecured network or access other devices in the home; internet access will be unfiltered in both scenarios.>> My Blog articles <<
