I'm trying to set parental control for one of the kids in household, url...2gaming2Every Day 06:00 - 22:43 (meaning from 6am to 10:43pm he can acces ONLY those two sites, correct?)but, when I turn parental control on, all internet is off for him even allowed sites. Time right now is 21:44 gmt+2 and my router time is set right, so I don't know why it doest work?
For our children, we use the parental control feature of the DIR-615 (RevD, FW4.11b15), which works excellently. I use the whitelist feature, so only trusted web sites can be accessed. Unfortunately the DIR-615 only has 10 entries in that list and I will soon need more. So I wonder if there is another D-Link router that offers a bigger list with maybe 50 or even 100 entries?

I'am a user of perfect-privacy.com (who provide VPN access for safe internet usage) and want to force the users of my internet connection to use perfect-privacy. On my old router i only allow access to the domain *.perfect-privacy.com and deny all other domains. To surf the web it was nessesary to connect via VPN (example server: moscow.perfect-privacy.com) to surf the web.
I've tested the Parental Control, but when i have activated it, i can access perfect-privacy.com, but i can't open a VPN connection to a Perfect Privacy server. Is there any way to configure Parental Control to allow VPN connections, or realize me needs in another way?
I am trying to use the Parental Control feature. I can't use Cisco Connect as there currently isn't an update for this router for Mac OSX Lion The firmware version in the support site hasn't been updated for ages, and I am running the latest (v 1.0.04) The Parental control tab, that is supposed to appear in the web browser interface isn't there. It's supposed to be, but doesn't show up.
Just installed the E3200 and use to have a WRT54G. Wanted the N Band.Noticed two major deficiencies.
1) this device does not have Internet Access Policy option and the Parental Control interface is unbelievably poor?There are very few options to work with in terms of time of day to turn on and off blocking access. (Half hour increments only, not 5 minutes increments that I was use to). The "FROM" Field has AM only and the "TO" filed has PM only. This means if you wish a device to have access pass Midnight, you can't, or if you wish to block beginning in the AM, you can't. Furthermore there are no day selections, just School Night and Weekend Night. What if you just want to block school Night. You can't "turn off" weekend. Is there a way to gett full Internet Access firmware into this device.
2) When using Parental Control the devices to restrict access are only displayed by default names. I have 8 devices on the LAN and half of them say Network Device. Any way to identify them by a device name or MAC ID?
I would like to see the full range of 24 hours for setting parental controls on devices. As it stands now, I can only select a block of time that starts in the PM and ends in the AM. This isn't very useful if for instance I want to limit internet while my kids are home alone after school, from 3 PM to 5 PM, or say on the weekends to limit it from 7 AM to 5 PM. Just a suggestion that would make life a bit easier!
I have tried both old firmware (2.37) then the Cloud firmware and now back to 2.37 again. the parental controls seems kind of fool proof but anyhow they dont work for me.If I set the internet access as denied at certain times, if the client is already connected when that time occours, it can continue to use internet (until it disconnects and tries to reconnect). Happens almost every time. And the biggest problem is that if I try to block internet access for a device like a cell phone, even though the user can not access the internet through the web browser, apps like Facebook, games etc can still access internet. Kind of useless parental control?!But I have tried to reset, reflash etc.Also I find this router pretty unstable, the only device that works flawless is my iPad (3), the laptops and cell phones at home loses internet connection every one and then, even though it seems like they have good connection to the router. Never been a problem with my earlier routers.
I've been using router for approximately three weeks with little to no problems and today the Paretnal Controls lost control. Anytime they were enabled they prohibited the associated computers from acessing the web even though the specific times was set to midnight -6am. Strangely, this has worked fine for three weeks and the only way I could get things back working correctly was to reboot the router. Just another firmware bug?
I'm trying to limit my kids' access to the internet during the night, since I caught them plugging their laptops and the Xbox into the router's Ethernet ports late at night so they could circumvent the wireless guest access. The problem is, I only have 5 available control slots and the list of devices I browse to choose from is vague at best. Half of the devices listed in parental controls say "Network Device" and the other half say "iPhone" or "iPad". Isn't there an easy way to choose the correct devices to restrict, like by IP or MAC address? And if not, why is this so confusing and difficult? I have a family of 10 in my house and everyone is connecting with their own phn or 3 iPads, 2 laptops, 2 desktop PCs, 1 Xbox and 1 PS3.I tried limiting the DHCP Reservation list, but that seems to only affect the wireless access, not the 4 ethernet port connections.
I have the Linksys/Cisco router E4200. My question is setting up parental control features as specified in [URL] - specifically the blocking of sites based on certain keywords and/or blocking sites based on age groups (child/teen). I do not see this capability in my Cisco Connect software. Is this feature available for E4200 v1? If so, how can I obtain the software?
For a high end wireless router like the E4200, the parental control features are lacking. The other features and performance of the router are great, but why not provide outstanding router based parental controls? With the latest firmware (1.0.03) no new parental control features were made available. Currently, I can restrict by time, which is useful. I can also restrict 10 websites - which is not useful. I certainly don't want to maintain a list of the 10 most offending websites that I want to block. First of all, 10 is not even close to being enough. Second, and more important, there should be a way to subscribe to some service that automatically updates the list of blocked websites based on content. I would not mind paying for this service if the cost is reasonable. I know that there are software "solutions" for this, but my 6 year old easily found a way around this sort of solution. I have tried many with no success. The only real way to enforce parental controls in a home network is at the router. I would love to this feature available on this high end router. There are a few lower end wireless routers that offer this service, but the other feature set is poor. I want to have my cake and eat it too.
I have in my possession three E2000 and I wanted to buy 3 more, but the model seems to not be on sale anymore so I bought his successor the E2500.In the E2000 I used the Internet Policy menu to block internet access of certain computer by entering their mac address.In the E2500, they seem to have removed this menu to replace it with a Parental Control menu, which offers far fewer options, basically you can only block a computer that is connected to the router, you can not block a pc by the ip or by his mac address.Is there a way to have a menu similar to Internet policy in the E2500? A hidden menu, or a different firmware?
I'm sure this has been asked a 1000 times but don't see my router.I have a WRT31on I lost the software in a fire (saved the router) never used parental control but now all the grand kids are asseccing with ipads, pods etc.can't use parental on each item. need to do it at the router
Why does my E1200 forget my Parental Control Password? This happens almost weekly and I have to use the "forgot password" option. It asks my security question, I answer it and set the new password to the same password it keeps forgetting. Why does this happen? Also, is there anyway to have total 24hr control on the Block Internet Access?
I've just bought all-in-one router X2000.And I found that in the parental control [ADD] windows does not show every device's name.It shows only 3 of 20 devices (ex. My-nb, PCaccount, PChuman, but the others show "Network device").
I'm trying to activate parental control for the F5D7231-4 (2000). When I go to the parental control screen, I only get a button to subscribe now (see image). When I click the button, I am sent to the Belkin UK website. I cannot find out how to get the parental controls activated on the U.S. site. I am running the latest firmware (F5D7231-4_US_5.01.11 ).
Update: I looked at the source code for the page in the router...it's referencing a website : [URL] that no longer seems to be valid. Or is this a problem in the firmware ?
How to configure Belkin N (F5D8636-4) Client IP Filtering so that a range of client IP' deny access to the internet using the following blocked time ranges e.g. Mon 5:00pm to Tues 2:00pm, Tues 5:00pm to Wed 2:00pm, Wed 5:00pm to Thur 2:00pm, Thur 5:00pm to Fri 2:00pm, Fri 5:00pm to Sat 10:00am, Sat 1:00pm to Sun 10:00am, Sun 1:00pm to Mon 2:00pm - BTW - this access regime is to deny internet access for my teenage son?
I would like to use the web access control that is on the DIR-615 along with my 2Wire modem/wireless router. Is this possible? If not is is possible to put the 2Wire modem into bridge mode and purchase a second wireless modem to run along side the DIR-615 that I have so that I can have two separate wireless networks that have two different web access controls in place?
I have a situation where I have tenants connecting to my wireless network and paying towards the internet bill. I am able to control this by using MAC filtering, but I have just realised that this only works for wireless clients.
Is there a way to replicate this for the router's Lan ports? Or possibly even just disable Lan access. The router model is a D-link DSL-2750U.

I'd like to make exception keywords in the Access Control but I don't know how I could possibly do this. E.g. I have put in the keyword "apple" to be blocked, so if a domain has the keyword "apple" in it, it will be automatically blocked. What can I do, however, if I want to make an exception for the domain "appletree.com"? I haven't found any way to make an exception to specific domains or keywords.

Looking at the manual for this router in regards to bandwidth restrictions.When you set up the Rules under Bandwidth Control does this setting shared by the IP range or does each IP in the range get that amount of bandwidth?
I have tried to setup access control by setting up a policy that restricts certain MAC addresses during a period during the day from certain websites. I set up the website filter and a schedule and selected them for the policy. Instead of blocking just the websites on the filter list during the time setup in the schedule, it blocks all websites all the time.I made sure that I setup the policy to 'block some access' NOT 'block all access'.The only thing that seems to work is that only the computers with the MAC address selected are effected.
I may be doing it incorrectly, but I'm trying to configure web access rules. I first set up access control and tell it to use the website filter. I've tried configuring it by both MAC address and IP address (separately, not simultaneously), but it still allows the listed sites in the web filter to get through. Is there something else I need to block or am I not doing something correctly? The network is on DHCP reservation, so IP addresses are always the same. MAC addresses, as I mentioned, don't work, either and they are fixed and logged in the router.
DIR655 with 1.33NA firmware. I'm trying to determine how to block access to the internet for a specific LAN computer when the user knows how to change a MAC address. I don't want to turn MAC control on and grant only to listed computers - the list doesn't accommodate enough MAC addresses, and the client has wireless and wired since it's a laptop. I also don't want to set static IPs on all of the devices since some cannot accommodate that feature.I'm thinking that reserving an IP address isn't ultimately the solution either, since assigning the IP isn't going to work if the MAC changes. how to use access control under these circumstances?
When attempting to configure access controls from the advanced menu I enable the access control checkbox. I then follow the configuration wizard completing each step as directed by the wizard. When I complete the wizard and try to save the rule I get the following error message regardless of how I complete the wizard. "Name can not be empty string". Yes, cannot is misspelled in the message. I have tried every combination of choices in the wizard and many combinations of naming the rule to no avail.
This did work properly on a previous firmware version, probably 1.04 or 1.05. I have not tried back loading to the previous versions to see where it did or did not work. I don't know how well the router goes back and don't really care to reload all the settings again by hand if the automatic recovery doesn't work.I want to use this feature to control what hours certain machines on the network have access to the internet.
