NO matter what I do, No matter what settings or time I save, the devices are getting blocked on the times that they are supposed to be UNblocked. I just want to prevent my kids' devices from accessing the internet between 8PM and 4:30PM the following day Sunday through Thursday. Honest to God, it can't be this hard to get a straight answer after four weeks of asking.
I'm going to post screenshots of each step of this process. Maybe someone will figure out what my problem is & why my WiFi is not blocking the Net during the times I've set up. IF this doesn't work, I'll go with Comcast.
This is my current configuration:
When I edit the Schedule, I get this:
When I edit the Time Segments, I get this:
When I edit the Hours Range I get this:
And despite this, my kids are blocked from the Internet at 6PM at night ....duriing the times that I think that they should be able to get online, at least according to my understanding of how to set up the schedule. So, what am I doing wrong???
Well, I've wasted 4 weeks of my life running in circiles with Verizon trying to get a simple answer to my question, why not run around another 4 weeks in the Verizon community doing the same thing?
can someone P L E A S E help me??????????????????????
Here is the configuration I had set up on one of my attempts. At this point, I've tried so many options, I don't even know where I started from:
In spite that the status was "Inactive", which I'm thinking that the blocking rule is "Inactive", the devices were still being blocked....when they should not have been. So I set up a new arrangement:
When I edit the Schedule box, here's the settings:
When I edit the Time Segment, I get this setting:
Now according to my understanding of time, I should have the Internet blocked on the devices (listed in the pictures) between 8PM (20:00) and 4:30PM (16:30), Eastern Daylight Savings Time on the following day for Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
Lo and behold, the devices are still BLOCKED at 6:30PM...when they should NOT be.
Can ANYBODY show me intelligently how to set up a simple access schedule on a wireless router?
So far, my satifaction level with both Verizon AND the Verizon "Community" is in the toilet. If not one can help, let me know now & I'll start looking for another ISP. I am beyond frustrated & have lost all patience.
