@maddee888 

If you login to the hub, you can use Access Control to block any device

@daveplus . yes , but , as i said , when the router is reset , which my child does everytime I set up restrictions using access control, the settings go back to default, which is why I am asking how to do it using PLUSNET PROTECT

Suggestion .... get hold of a new router, then change the default wifi password to something else. Fit the new router. Change the passwords on all devices to the one on the new router. Remove or deface the original label with the original details.
Then when the router is reset it'll go back to the original - result no access when reset.

Log into the router using its admin password. Most routers will allow you to change its wifi password.
Exactly how depends on the individual router.
What model is it? Ask on here for advice.

How old is your child?

As for the router, if its a plusnet router once re-set it should re-connect as they are pretty basic plug in and go devics.

 if you have a consumer non plusnet router, once re set to factory defaults then it will need you ( or someone) to r-enter the plusnet connection details.

 You could also try moving the router/ hidinif over 10 g it somewhere, altough the effect of this will depend upon how old the child is, if over 10 then it will most likely be found
