Parental control

Can I set up a timer on one connection? I don't want my son using the WiFi when he should be sleeping

Re: Parental control


Yes that is possible.

You can configure the hub to block Internet access for a device. Browse to - sign in -> Advanced Settings -> Security -> MAC Filtering.

Select the device from the device list, assign it a device name, then click add device. Now you can add timed access rules against it. For example if you wanted to block Internet access for it from 9PM to 8PM every day you would create two rules:
* EVERY DAY, 21:00~23.59
* EVERY DAY, 00:00~08:00

There is a limit of 7 rules and ensure you click the Apply button to save the changes.

Rules must be added this way (24 hour based), it is not possible to add a single rule for say 9PM to 8AM as that will error and tell you the end time cannot be earlier than the start time.
