DIR-842 parental control and schedule
« on: April 06, 2020, 12:33:16 PM »

Hi... I have trouble setting up parental control and schedule... I think the schedule is a little misleading... If i create a schedule let say Monday and drag from 8am to 10pm... Save and apply to my son phone... I would think my son phone have access to internet from 8sm - 10pm... BUT... It's the other way around... My son don't have access to internet from 8am - 10pm...

So what i did is this... Create a schedule... Let say Monday... I drag 0 to 8... Then drag again 22 - 24... This way my son's phone have internet access from 8am to 10pm...

I thought the yellow which i drag is the time period... Instead it's the white blank is the access... Is this a bug?

Let me asked, if you want to make your son phone to have access to internet ONLY from 8am to 10pm... How do you set up in schedule?

Btw... I have the latest firmware... C1 3.13beta9... thanks...

hi thanks... that one is working find with SSID schedule... the one with yellow is the time period the SSID is working... and the white blank is the off state...

BUT when you tried it on PARENTAL CONTROL / SCHEDULE... it is the other way around... ive been trying to figure it out... then just found out that... the YELLOW is actually the DISABLE... the WHITE blank is actually ENABLE ...

here is the schedule for parental control to make the 8am-10pm internet allowed... I don't know why but this one is working instead...

Possible operational selection issue maybe. Not sure how D-Link intended that to work.
What does the user manual say?

The user manual didn't elaborate. Schedule and drag the time you want for the day you want. Logically it's correct. You dear and select the time you want. But when applied to Parental Control, it will be reversed, the one you selected yellow is the disable and the white blank is the enable. I tried it and it only like this on parental control.

Possible something that D-Link to work more seamlessly and intuitive. I personally would not have used Yellow, Red or a shade of RED would be more appropriate and RED would and should mean ALL BLOCKED across the board. LOL. WHITE, it's open season.  ;)
