      Not that I am aware of.

      Why would you want to do that in the first place?

      Give her PC a reserved IP address in the router then set up a block all for that IP in the firewall rules that you can turn on when you want/need to. You can set it up as a schedule if you want so for instance she would automatically lose internet access at certain times of day e.g. bed time.

      Yes that's it.

      Tell you what - it's a bit late in the evening now and I need to log off. I'll write a guide for you tomorrow and add to this thread. If I forget, give me a nudge to remind me.

      (Any late owls up now want to do this instead then feel free )

      Re: Conection Ports

      Here you go - might look complicated but it's pretty straightforward.

      Guide to controlling internet access for a PC on your LAN.

      There are three steps to this process:
      • Assigning a reserved IP address
      • Setting a schedule (optional)
      • Set up a firewall rule


      First, you need to ensure the PC you want to control is turned on and connected to the router. Then either from that PC or any other PC on the network, log into the router to get to the admin pages.

      Assigning a reserved IP address

      • In the admin menu select LAN IP Setup in the left hand menu
      • At the bottom of the page under address reservation click add
      • On the next page identify which PC you want to control. Normally a unique name that the PC has will be listed that you can recognise. If not then you will either have to physically go to the PC and check what IP address it currently has or identify by elimination. To physically check the IP of a PC right click on the two little screens at the bottom of the screen by the time. Select status then support. The current IP address of that machine is then shown (it will be in the format 192.168.0.x)
      • Once you know which PC it is select it in the left hand column. The empty boxes should now be filled. Then click add then apply on the next page

      What you've done in this process is ensure that the PC in question will always be given the same IP by the router from now on.

      Next step (optional if you don't ever want to use a schedule):


      Setting a schedule

      How you set up a schedule will depend on what you want to do e.g. whether you want to prevent access at certain times or allow it.

      To prevent access at certain times e.g. internet connection is denied at 10:30 each evening coming back at 6:00 in the morning:

      • On the left hand menu select Schedule
      • Select which days this will be effective
      • Untick all day
      • Enter the start time (22:30)
      • Enter the end time (06:00)
      • Check the current time is correct as shown at the bottom of the screen
      • Click apply


      Next step

      Set up a firewall rule

      • Select Firewall Rules on the left hand menu
      • Under outbound services select add
      • On the next page click on the service drop down box
      • Select Any(ALL)
      • Under action choose whether you want to use the schedule that's been set up (if one has) or some other action.
      • Under LAN users select single address
      • In the boxes enter the IP address you set earlier into the first box
      • Decide whether you want to log this (probably not)
      • Click apply

      To completely lock down the PC you may wish to do the above for inbound services as well but it won't usually be necessary.

      That's it done.

      A couple of things to note: You can go back into those pages at any time to modify the actions. For example turn block by schedule to block always if you want internet access to stop that minute. Turn it to allow always if you want to give unrestricted access. Remember to click apply if/when you make a change.

      One last thing. If you get in a muddle and change something that has an affect you don't want and don't know how to correct it then resetting the router will clear everything and return it to how it was when delivered. Resetting is done by pushing something like the end of a paperclip into the little hole on the back of the router for 10 seconds or so.
