Parental controls and ethernet

Message 1 of 2
(103 Views)

I've used the MyFios app parental controls to shut off wifi access at certain times for the kids. But we recently needed to hook my stepson's pc up directly using an ethernet cable. It's plugged right into the router and now it seems the app doesn't work for that. Is there a way to still set limits and shut off access at a given time?

Can you elaborate on this? What do you mean by "the app doesn't work for that?" Can you take a screenshot of what you are seeing?

 

On router's GUI, you should be able to configure Parental Controls based on IP addresses. Once you enabled Parental Controls on the APP, the router's Parental Control interface will be disabled.
