online time limit 2740u
« on: November 03, 2014, 01:33:04 PM »

Hi. I tried to set up parental control and limit the access to internet for some mac addresses but I failed. I read the help where it says:


        You would only like to allow your child to access the Internet from Monday to Friday, and from 19:00 to 21:00 only.

            You can then set the Username to "BeforeAccess", then enter the MAC address of your child\'s computer.
            Check the checkbox Monday to Friday and set the Start time to 00:00 and the End Time to 19:00.
            Now you have just denied Internet access of your child\'s computer from 00:00 to 19:00, Monday to Friday.
            Then repeat the steps above, but now enter "AfterAccess" in the Username field. Then enter 21:00 for the Start time and 23:59 for the End time.
            There is no username field in this section. Please help me.

  • What Hardware version is your modem? Look at the sticker under modem.
  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the modems web page under status.
  • What region are you located?

I believe the controls do work, just depends if the configurations are set up correctly.
I do believe DNS Relay and Advanced DNS Services need to be used along with configuring Reserved IP addresses, Scheduling, and Access Controls. However I'm not sure if these features are available on DSL modems.

To set up scheduling:
1. Reserve device IP addresses ON the router under Setup/Networking.
2. Set up a schedule under Tools/Schedule on the routers web page. Customize your dates and times here.
3. Use Access Control under Advanced to apply the customized schedule to a policy and to the PC(s) desired to be controlled. 
4. Ensure Time is set correctly on the router. Tools/Time.
