Look for a small hole on the back of the router and push in with a paperclip,i think until the lights start blinking.

The little hole next to the power supply socket !!!

Or call up the Netgear menu, look for the option Block Sites and scroll down to the option to clear the blocked sites list.

To get to the blocked site list as iscanut suggests you will need to type 192.168.0.1 into the address bar, then in the pop up the default username is admin and the default password is password. Look on the left list for Blocked Sites and remove those you don't need.

Of course if your husband has changed the default username or password you will have to find out what they are.

The small hole i was refering to was the hole to access the reset button.

I know...I was just saying where the reset hole is..at least on my Netgear router.

hit your husband on the head with a spade and tell him if he blocks it again you are going to leave and get internet somewhere else
