It seems that this is a free service through my Belkin router. It looks to be a filter against questionable web sites. Looks interesting but I think all know my opinion of anything Norton.

Just wondering if any know anything about this thing and recommendations... Please keep in mind that this would be a router level security layer. It has nothing to do with my actual computers, only my router. Even though I don't exactly like Norton my gut reaction is to try the thing at the first level of protection labeled as "Low filtering" or the second labeled as "Medium filtering".

Here is the router dashboard setting page for the thing.

Worst thing that it can do is block sites you really meant to go to that are actually safe and perhaps add a hint of latency to your web browsing.
