Enable parental comtrol for not connected devices
« on: October 22, 2017, 08:39:59 AM »

I have set fixed/static allocated IP-address on a computer in my network. I would no like to enable parental control when the device is not connected. Does anyone know if this is possible?

PS. I just love when people add a new shiny nice user interfaces and breaks the old useful, but ugly, functionality. That what I call a nice trade. PS.

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

I recommend setting a RESERVED IP address ON the router for ALL devices. Enable DNS Relay. Set up Parental controls for those devices you wish to manage and control access. Will need to set up a schedule as well:
Blocking: Router Access Control, Blocking, Web Filters and Scheduling FAQ
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 Advanced/Access Control configured and apply the customized schedule to a policy and to the PC(s) or device(s) desired to be controlled. 
4. Ensure Time is set correctly on the router. Tools/Time.

I do believe Setup/Networking/DNS Relay and or Setup/Internet/Manual/Advanced DNS Services need to be enabled along with configuring Reserved IP addresses, Scheduling, and Access Controls.
