The router relies on DNS services like OpenDNS to block proxy sites. When you check “Block Proxy” in access control, the router blocks HTTP requests sent through a proxy (i.e., when the user has set up to use a proxy server in their browser Connection option), which is a technique DNS services do not block.

As far as we know, the best protection against proxy sites is OpenDNS.
