All I want is Hub 3.0 Mac address/timed access filtering to work. If I have to buy additional equipment I would not want a Hub3.0.
Fair enough. But even with a 3rd party router (which has no cable modem inside) you have no choice but to use the VM hub to get internet connectivity.
You could sort this problem today at PC World for a few £'s as most cable routers have the feature you want but why not just keep complaining for years instead and wasting your time and energy. Your choice, but a VM solution won't be quick. The next firmware update is not likely to give you what you want. The last firmware update actually removed some features.
I am not just complaining for me but for the other parents as well and who would like this function to work and have given up posting. I am not wasting my time but preparing to migrate our email accounts from the VM service in preparation to switch ISP, dump the TV and land line when the contract expires. I am aware of the reset function and there is a simple solution so no problem there. End Of Thread.
It is more simple than you might think - the MAC filtering WORKS - but probably because of software glitch it doesn't work over midnight hour of 0000.
So first - as an example - time that you want to restrict goes as 2000-2400 and then 0000-0900, right?
One would have to set it manually as 2000-2359 and then 0000-0900 (or 2000-2400 and then 0001-0900).
BUT because you cant set it in minutes using the hub itself (the slider is in 1h spans) then you have to do 2000-2400 and then 0100-0900. This way the HUB doesn't freeze on you after you set it and the restriction is working.
And also and more importantly it works just fine with my 2 kidos, I havent have them yet finding out, that from midnight till one in the morning their Nitendo works...... muhehehe!
