Control over internet access on home network system

  Munchkin 21:11 21 May 14

My household has the following items, all of which can access the internet by my wireless modem/router: three laptops, three smart phones, and an iPad. I would like, if possible, to restrict internet access to specific times for one or more of these items. Is there any way I can do this?

Most IPs now provide family protection through their routers, but I believe it's all or nothing, and individual computers can not be configured. There is paid for software available. Have a look at K9 as an example

Munchkin, a lot of routers can do what you want although it can be a tad fiddly and complicated to configure. Login to your router and look for a "parental control" or "schedule" section and hopefully it'll have an option to restrict access. If it does then you'll need the device's MAC address to setup any rules on a per-device basis.

All Bt home hubs will do this, what make and model of router do you have?

Thanks FB - I didn't know that that facility existed. I know of a number of parents who will be keen to learn about it too!
