Restrict internet not WiFi access

Hi,

Re the Virgin Hub 3.0. I was wondering if it is possible to allow a device to connect onto home WiFi network and to communicate with other devices on that network BUT to restrict that particular device from accessing the wider internet? 

 Many thanks

Re: Restrict internet not WiFi access

Hello

I am afraid it is only possible to restrict wireless connected devices, it isn't possible to do this with a wired connection on Hub 3.

Regards Mike

Re: Restrict internet not WiFi access

Hi Mike,

The devices would be connected via WiFi to the Hub and I would like them to then operate normally over the local network but I would like to prevent them from then accessing the internet. Could this be achieved?

 Many thanks

Config each device with a IP and no gateway that will stop it accessing the internet but allow local network within it subnet.

Re: Restrict internet not WiFi access

That will work, but easily circumvented. The only real way is to get your own router that would support this type of function, no knowledge if “standard” retail routers support this, but my Ubiquiti one does by using some JSON.

Re: Restrict internet not WiFi access

I’m not too fussed about it being actively circumvented by an individual, it’s more the devices themselves that I’d like to stop being able to pass data that is not required for their intended purpose. 

Cheers!

Re: Restrict internet not WiFi access

Thanks legacy. Can this be done via advanced settings on the Hub 3.0?

No - per device.
