Re: Controlling Teens Time on Wifi - Parental Controls

I used this on our first SuperHub, worked brilliantly.

Now we have upgraded to Hub 3.0 and cannot see any such facility.

Massive omission by VM - please please bring this back.

Re: Controlling Teens Time on Wifi - Parental Controls

I am also unable to find this facility on the Hub 3.0, worked great on the original SuperHub.

Need VM to bring this feature back.

Re: Controlling Teens Time on Wifi - Parental Controls

There does not seem to be any rush on VM's part to restore these features for HUB3 users...

Likely better with a better router and HUB in modem mode.

Re: Controlling Teens Time on Wifi - Parental Controls

Time restrictions for devices are on the Hub 3.0 (with firmware 9.1.116V), although you do have to select all the devices to apply it to, rather than blocking everything except the device listed.

Re: Controlling Teens Time on Wifi - Parental Controls

Also you can specifically block devices from connecting to Wireless separately to the timed MAC list:
