Mac Filtering Hub 3

We have two teenage boys with two xboxes and other gadgets - more fool us!  We want to limit / restrict internet access over night and early morning.  Can't seem to get Mac filtering to work on individual devices without having to turn the whole wifi network off. Is there a way to limit specific devices to the wifi.  Suggestions from Virgin or users much appreciated.

Thanks

Me Too. I had to buy a separate router and operate the Hub3 in modem mode. I am using an Asus RT-AC3200 which covers the mac and timed access along with additional site access restrictions and filters for dubious content. It is a little pricy but other wifi routers are available that do a similar job.

Re: Mac Filtering Hub 3

I am reluctant to buy a new router as this used to work on my SuperHub2. 

Any news on it being fixed for the SuperHub 3?

Re: Mac Filtering Hub 3

I have been asking the same question for over a year now and is the only reason I signed up to this site in the first place. I had to give up and bought a separate router which works great.

Re: Mac Filtering Hub 3

I had this question when I joined Virgin in April last year. The answer is it doesn't work. There is a software issue with teh Hub 3 and Virgin care so much about their customers that they don't tell you this. In fact they tell you it will work fine- asI was told when my Hub 3 was installed. If you need filtering of this kind you need to buy another router and just use the Hub 3 as your internet source instead of as a router.

Re: Mac Filtering Hub 3

Annoying isn't it. The separate wifi router option works fine for me but the MAC blocking/Timed access should have been included on the Hub3 before they released it. No sign of an update so I will keep using the modem mode.
