      Can i stop my kids connecting after 11pm

      Hello

      does the router allow for connections to be terminated at 11pm and allow connections to be connected after 9am, the reason i ask is that my teenage kids will stay up all night talking to their friends on MSN and be too tired for school if i dont stop them connecting.

      this is my second router, the first was plugged into a mains timer that switched it on and off between those times, but i am wondering if switching it on and off is what knackered it.

      if there is a way of doing it in the router itself i think it would be better.

      any help is appreciated

      There is the option with the router.
      I believe though that you`ll have to set the PC`s to be controlled with static IP`s. You can then set times that those IP`s can / can`t access internet.
      Portforward.com will show you how to set static Ip`s

      Oh just thougth :
      If your kids connect wirelessly and your main PC is hard wired to router then you could disable
      wireless on router control panel ( but that means you have to remember to do it )-:

      It should be possible using the Firewall Rules and the Schedule function. This would block all PCs from the Internet, so might not be what you want. You would also have to protect the router with a strong password, or the kids would very quickly crack it. I do not think switching the router off daily should harm it. My D-Link router run for 3 years being switch off every night! My son now uses it and does the same.

      Why don't you just tell them not to? I guess I'm from the wrong generation:-(
