Today, a tech came in to fix a problem we've been having and ended up replacing our router. We had an Actiontec router and now have a Westell 9100em router. The Actiontec had the capability, using parental controls, to turn off internet access to particular nodes (computers/xbox) for certain times. The only thing I see on the 9100em is that I can block individual websites, (can't use wildcards though).
I need answers to 2 questions.
1) Is it possible to shut off internet access to certain nodes for specific time periods?
2) Is there a way to use wildcards on the website blocking?
log into your router by opening IE and erase all of the URL on adress bar. Type in 192.168.1.1 in the adress bar and nothing else. User name=admin password = password or password1. Click on parental controls.
Step 1. Select the Networked Computer/Device for this Allow or Block Rule.
Step 2. Create the Parental Control Rules and Schedules.
