The content controls are located in your account details that you can access from this site - they are not on the router!  They're also not particularly great, and seem to cause more problems than they cure.  Rather than turning them off, changing your DNS servers on the router is a much better option.


If you want filtered DNS there are better free options from the likes of Quad 9, Yandex, and others.

You could try HOSTS


# Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and host name should be separated by at least one space.
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
# For example:
# # source server
# # x client host

# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
# localhost
# ::1 localhost
# localhost localhost.localdomain local broadcasthost
::1 localhost
fe80::1%lo0 localhost

#GMX gmx.*/sport/*

#HP *






If in doubt please ask.
