      Sagem router date and time

      Probably a very easy answer somewhere,

      but I've been setting up (or trying to setup) scheduling using the firewall rules on the Sagem router. I need to block (or allow) all traffic to my daughters PC at certain times - shes up half the night on the bloody thing!

      The problem is that following a router reboot the router now thinks ists 1st January 2000 at midnight -
      How do I manually set the time in the router to correct it?

      On a related issue,
      I setup a rule for 'allow by schedule', I've added it to the firewall rules and applied it but it seems to have no effect...
      (the plan being to allow communication between say 9am and 10.30pm) but it doesnt seem to block stuff outside those times...
      Do I need to setup two rules - one to allow by schedule and one to block by schedule???

      Hi,

      The Sky time servers are having technical difficulties so the router time may not be correct.

      Re: Sagem router date and time

      Aha, so that's why my router thought that today is 2000-01-01 after it rebooted a few hours ago!

      On the Security>Schedule page of my V1 Router user interface, I have now put in the IP address of ntp1.isp.sky.com (which is 90.207.238.105), ticked the "Use this NTP server" box and my date & time was corrected after clicking on the "Apply" button.

      Re: Sagem router date and time

      thanks for the replies -

      for info, the Sagem router with firmware 1.5 has no option to set the router time, and no option to synch with one of the internet time servers.

      Happily, its now correct so I assume it synched with Sky eventually.

      On the other issue, I have setup an outbound rule that blocks all traffic from daughter's IP, but in the schedule settings, if I set it to 23.00 to start, I cant set it past 23:59 to end or I get an error message that the end time is earlier than the start time...

      I will tinker around with it.

      Maybe you need to set two rules - one for the time from midnight to 8am (or whatever) and another for 11pm (or whatever) to 23:59 ?
