Restricting my childrens internet access times.

Hi!
I'm finding it difficult to tear my little darlings away from their tablets after school when it's home work time. On my old router there was the option to restrict cetain devices access times. Is this an option on the Technicolor tg582n as supplied by PlusNet?
Thanks in advance

Re: Restricting my childrens internet access times.

What firmware is your router using?
If you log in by going here http://192.168.1.254 entering admin as the username and the routers serial number that starts with CP (All in Capitals) it'll be next to software release.
If it's starts with 8.4.4 we'll need to get your router upgraded to the latest one.

I'll ask a colleague if we can get it upgraded for you.
[EDIT]
We can't at the moment but if you go here you can upgrade it manually

You'll have to use a Windows 7 or XP machine to do it.

OK, I'll do that. But which one do I update to?

10.2.5.2.FO should be the one you need.

Re: Restricting my childrens internet access times.

Hi!
Installed the update as sugested (Had to run it in compatibility mode for Windows Vista SP2 for some reason??) and now I have the ability to control wireless access times from the interface.
Thanks for your advice!
