Default Blocking websites?

We have a wireless network in our house (no server just a router) and i was wondering, is there a way to block a website so every computer connected to our wireless network would not be able to get on?

I want to block the limewire website (i have it blocked in the host file on one computer) because it gave the main computer a very bad virus (we almost had to format)

thanks,
lhamil64

There should be an option in the router settings to block it. What is the exact model of your router?

Just block the ports that limewire uses in the router configuration.

Try typing either 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 into your web browser.

double click your ethernet or wireless icon and go to support,
or go to start>run and type "cmd" and then "ipconfig" without the quotes and look for your default gateway, which will get you into your router
