    I have Linksys AG241 router and I noticed these options, what are these useful for?

    They are Filter Proxy, Filter Cookies, Filter Java Applets and Filter ActiveX.

    Filter Proxy - (n/a) blocks users from using open proxies to bypass access controls
    Filter Cookies - stops sites requesting cookie info
    Filter Java Applets - stops applets from being downloaded
    Filter ActiveX - stops activeX from being downloaded

    I'd use firefox and not bother enabling any of those controls
    (as you could end up with sites not working and wondering what's going on)
