|Ok, taking it one step at a time:|
The router has it's own ssid of 'hotel' and the access point also has its on ssid as 'guest' because the access point is what the guest will pick up. Well in the router config. page at 192.168.1.1 I tried to block certain web pages for instance lets just say http://www.google.com and then save settings. Well on the main computer the router is hooked up to google.com will be blocked. But for anyone logging in wireless to the access point (which is connected to the router with the settings) will be able to access google.com
According to what I see here, you have setup two separate wireless networks. One on the router (hotel) and the other on the AP (guest). You then edit the "hotel" WLAN and set it so you can't reach google.
Considering you have to separate WLAN's it's not surprise is it, that a change made on "hotel" doesn't affect a user on "guest". This is expected since the two ("hotel" and "guest") are completely different (and separate) WLAN's (wireless local area networks)
In order for the restriction to affect someone connecting wirelessly to the AP, the AP would have to be a part of "hotel".
I thought hooking the access point straight up to the router would in theory take the settings from the router to the AP but it doesn't.
It will, if you make sure the AP is part of the WLAN configured on the router. As I said above, the way you have set things up (ie: separate WLAN on the AP) it can't get those settings.
Anyone know how I can get my access point to recognize the settings i put on my router like web page blocking, mac filtering, internet use by time of day, QOS ect..
I suspect after reading my previous input you already have figured out the answer. To be perfectly clear, for changes made on the WLAN configured on the router to be accessible to the AP and anyone connected to it, the AP has to be connected to (a part of, a member of) the WLAN configured on the router.
It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
