How can I limit internet acess at certain times of the day?

Hi,
Sorry - new to the forum and you've probably been asked the same question 1000000 times.
I want to limit internet access at certain times of the day to focus my son's mind away from his X-Box and onto his studies. Can someone please help me to do this? I'm not bothered if all internet access is lost for the time or if it is just X-Box access to the net.
Thanks.....jfk  Crazy

Some sort of parental control software is probably needed for that, but for your purposes it would have to be on the router to avoid the restriction being bypassed. I don't think the Thomson TG585v7 has time-based parental control but potentially could be manually set to allow connection only to one website when you want to restrict access; the settings would have to be manually changed to open it up when appropriate. Not ideal but a start.
