Parental Control

Have been trying to set times for my sons devices to switch off the internet. I have logged into hub manager selected devices etc...but when I apply this he gets logged off straight away,its as if the hub is ignoring the times I have set,any advice would be appreciated thanks

I suspect that any self-respecting child could easily find ways round your reliance on a gadget.

BTW He doesn't get "logged-off" anything - the effect is the same as cutting the wire to the internet; there is no controlled shutdown happening.

Re: Parental Control

This hasn't answered my query,logged off,internet switch off still restricts devices.

Re: Parental Control

Is it the case that applying your changes causes a soft reboot of your router?

Are connections remade after a few minutes during the allowable hours?

Still think an ounce of parental interest is worth a pound of router settings.

Re: Parental Control

ramblinjen, it is more than likely that the router is resetting itself to allow it to apply the rules you have just set and as a consequence he is / they are getting their connection(s) dropped. Chances are the rules you have applied will be enforced at the correct time but as has been mentioned it is a trivial task to circumvent these rules.

@ramblinjen

often when you change parental settings on routers you have to restart the router from the interface for the new rules to take effect

 

its possible that the interface isnt working correctly in which case you would need to contact the manufacturer for help if its a plusnet router then the help desk will be your best option for aid 

just because your paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you
