I would like to block a group of IP's within this router supplied by Shaw, I cannot see an option to do so. Any help would be appreciated.
Took a look through the GUI on the SBG, there isn't any feature that will help you out.
Thank you for reaching out to us. When you access the router settings at http://192.168.0.1/ you can log in and modify the advance settings. In there you will see IP filtering, you can enable and block certain IPs.
Please let us know how it goes.

Thanks Tony, actually I want to block the router from seeing certain WAN IP's not LAN.
I can suggest for you to try setting a reserve IP address for the ones that you do not want the modem to assign, you would just put in a dummy mac address and put the IP address that you do not want it to assign. You can set multiple ones.
Try this out and let me know if it works out.
That seems a little far fetched to me. I want to block Googles DNS (188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206) as I have some devices that are hard coded to use it and I want those devices using the DNS I have specified in the router. So when those devices cannot reach Googles DNS they will fail over to the numbers I have specified in the manual DNS setting of the router.
Been brainstorming with a few colleagues on whether or not this will work, and haven't been able to come to a conclusion unfortunately. I can definitely see how that would be handy though, as manually having to change the DNS server on the device using it is a bit of a pain. I'm not sure if blocking the Google DNS servers through the router would be the best course of action for this though. Perhaps our gurus corbin or cdearborn would be able to offer some further insight on this? It would be interesting to know if this would work.
You would have to be able to set an IP route to a dead IP to block this...
I won't have access to an SBG until Friday
I appreciate your help. The hard coded DNS entries was introduced in a patch by Roku to enforce Geo blocking. So they have removed the ability to edit your IP address and DNS all together to prevent people from watching US Netflix (disturbing trend I must say...very big brother). Anyways, this is my conundrum. If I cannot do this, only solution would be making my router a gateway and introducing another router which can block WAN IP's at my own cost (which is not going to happen as I am not that anal about this).
Looking forward to see if you can get around this.
I don't think the eRouter in our modem has an exposed IP routing function you can use, but I'll look on friday.
I ended up just buying another Apple TV which allows me to edit the DNS. Thank you all for the assistance.
