If you have been wondering if paying a yearly fee for the comprehensive parental control feature that accompanies the lackluster iBoss routeris worth it, you might want to give Netgear's Wireless-N 300 WNR2000 wireless router a shot instead.

Netgear announced August 4 the release of its Live Parental Controls, a comprehensive Web-filtering feature that will be integrated into the WNR2000 and future Netgear routers.

The new feature enables parents and small businesses to restrict Internet access to all the devices that connect via the router, with filtering based on more than 50 categories of content. The Live Parental Controls incorporate a comprehensive set of filtering features including those that are not available in other parental control solutions, such as remote management from mobile devices and highly flexible settings.

The best thing about the new features is that they're free.

Hands-on testing and a full review of Netgear's Wireless-N 300 WNR2000 wireless router will be available soon.
