Block Internet Access

Message 1 of 11
(55,564 Views)

I need to know if there is a way I can block/control my step-son's access to the internet from his laptop.  I went into my router and when I chose the "block internet access" the test computer in my list was still able to go online.  Also, when I deleted the XBoxes from the router, ther re-appeared as if not touoched.  Please advise.

You know with all that ranting the easiest solution is to simply change your network password to stop others from using your network. 

 

I dont know what issues you have with iPhones or iDevices which are made better, last longer, and are the device most people carry. I own 3 of them and they are far superior to Android devices in my opinion.

 

their iPads and iPods are top sellers and their new AirPods are so popular you cannot find them in stores they go fast. Their new selection of iMac and laptops are outselling the competition.

 

but in any case I think changing the wifi password for your network will solve your issue of people connecting.

 

you could use guest wifi mode to those others and set a time limit for the network to be up.

 

its in your router manual.

 

Good Luck

A few things.  Make sure you are blocking the correct laptop.  Go into the laptop and verify the IP address of the laptop.

 

Once you know the IP go under MY NETWORK in the router.

Find the laptop by IP and if you haven't already give it a name for example Joes_Laptop

 

Then select Block Internet Services next to his laptop or you can choose Firewall Settings, Access Control

 

CLick the red ADD

Select Joes_Laptop

Protocol should be ANY

When should this rule occur ALWAYS

 

Select Apply

Then select RESOLVE

Then Choose APPLY

 

This should block his laptop from the Internet.  See the screen shot below which is blocking Internet for a PC on my home network called desktop.

Can also use parental controls to control hours, sites, or complete access.

Dutch, you are one step ahead of me.  I can't seem to find out anywhere on all the various verizon pages and verizon ads to even get to the place where I can block my internet.  They don't seem to make that easy to find.  Someone help me.   I'm about ready to chuck it all in for another less complicated easier to use service.

 

I need to block my son's xbox and set time limits on the internet and cannot find out how.  Searches and support only give me preset questions and none of them are blocking devices in your home.

And where do you find these parental controls in all the noise on the pages?

Connect to the VZ Provided Router:

 

http://192.168.1.1

 

Choose Parental Control from the top menu bar

 

Parental Controls is a function of the in-home router, not the internet service.
