    I was just looking at my router settings today and I noticed my DNS Filtering tab is missing. I cant find it in my Parental Controls. I rebooted the router, reset to factory, and I still don't see it. Am I missing something obvious?

    Sorry, just adding that I have an RT 3100 and the filtering tab has been there and working for the last one year.

    OMG, stupid me. Yes, its there. I saw it as next to Parental Filter in the screenshot in documentation and was looking for it there.

    Indeed it used to be there and then, a couple of firmware updates ago, it moved to a more logical place.

    There’s so much stuff packed into the GUI it’s easy to forget where everything is, especially if it’s been a while since you last logged in.

    It was moved because users where under the impression DNSFilter was a Trend Micro-related feature - it's not. It's something I developed myself, originally inspired by Asus's YandexDNS feature, and does not require any of the Trend Micro components.

    I'll update the Wiki.
