Time restrictions for child's device

Hello

We've upgraded from superhub 2 to 3. We no longer have the feature for timed access for devices. How can I limit when I let my child's iPad connect to the internet?

I thought of setting the timings for switching guest network on/off and having ipad on guest network.

Can't seem to find how to do it?

Help and advice would be appreciated.

Thanks!

There is a post from Shelke here, post #3 in the thread, which suggests a workaround: http://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Switched-On-Families/Set-internet-time-limit-for-child/m-p/31388...

Re: Time restrictions for child's device

Hello flyingstars

 

Welcome to our forum, I am sorry you are having difficulties setting up timed access for some devices. A guest network can be set up via the Advance settings/wireless menu Configure Advanced Settings on your Virgin Media Hub although I do not think it is possible to automatically switch it off at predefined times, in fact you may need to do it manually.

 

Thank you 

Nicola

Re: Time restrictions for child's device

I have had to use this option too, and it is actually pretty useless.
