Limiting a child's WiFi access time

Is there a way to limit the time a child spends online by disconnecting (or blocking) their XBox or similar after a certain time at night? I can see how, via Admin, you can disconnect something, but that doesn't stop the child from just re-logging on to the router.

Fix

Hi @PeterHargreaves

If you were to log into the Hub One's Interface via 192.168.1.254 and navigate to the "settings" tab, there is a feature known as Plusnet Access Control.

This should give you the control which you are looking for if you have a play about with the settings of it! You are able designate devices certain times which they can connect to the internet through the Hub itself.

Have a look at the screen grab below.

I hope this helps!

Re: Limiting a child's WiFi access time

Thanks for that, worked perfectly.

Only limitation would be that i may have to change it for weekends to allow a little extra time. My solution was really required for school nights. Notwithstanding this, it's a good solution. Thanks again.
