DIR-842 Parental Control
« on: July 25, 2018, 10:49:50 AM »

Does this router have the ability to set internet access times per device? Its a recent purchase and so far the only thing Ive seen for internet access times is for a global policy. I did update to the most recent firmware after initial setup.

Thanks,

~MoX~

Link>Welcome!

  • What region are you located?

Does the user manual have any information regarding this?

This shows the schedule however this was the first new generation UI on the 880L...I don't have the newer 842. Some features different sometimes...

I've asked D-Link to look into this. Possible it's only Global...will find out more soon.  ;)

You can create up to 10 schedules and then assign them to clients.

When you click Connected Clients from the home screen, select the client and then the pencil icon. Click Parental Control and there should be a drop-down next to Schedule. Select your schedule.

Sorry for the late response, but I did figure it out last night. Greenbay42 hit the nail on the head, that's exactly how you do it.

I do have a suggestion for D-Link, add the process for accomplishing this task in the user manual. I didn't read the manual cover to cover but I used the index and tried the usual suspects to find the info to no avail.

Thanks for the help guys!

Glad it's working for you now.

I'll ensure D-Link reviews this suggestion. It's a good idea.

Enjoy.  ;)
