Broadband timer for kids

Hi,

 

Does anyone know how to restrict broadband at night? We need to stop broadband at night so our kids don't use.  We can't just switch off at mains as they turn this back on so need to switch off or time it off at certain times. 

Any help would be great.

 

Cheers

Re: Broadband timer for kids

If you have one of the black Super hubs then the answer is here:

If you have the new white hub 3.0 then I have seen a few posts that say it is currently not possible.

Re: Broadband timer for kids

This is excellent advice from SCA1972. Others on the Forum have suggested this free solution as well , which apparently is easy to set up and controllable by adults only!
