Blocking Childs computer during night time hours

How can I block just a single computer during night time hours? I have set a static IP address to my child's computer.

Use Live Parental Control.

These are filters - not for wholesale stopping of internet access.

Try Advanced / Security / Block Services / Type: All for "only this IP" address, and then use the schedule.

If someone knows an easier way, let us know.

Browse to support.netgear.com and download the User Manual. Refer to the sections headed something like Blocked Sites and Scheduled Blocking.

- For blocked sites, you could enter a dot to block all sites per schedule.

- You also need to ensure that the time/time zone is set under the section for E-mailing Logs. If the sheduled off and on times straddles 12 midnight, you may need to choose a time zone other than your own, that would roll-back the time by the amount of hours that would avoid crossing the 12 midnight point. Meaning, off and on times must exist within the same 24-hour cycle to trick the router.

- Also, you should set up your own PC to be excluded from this rule.

BTW, on the matter of parental controls in general, there are other issues to consider. Some of these were mentioned in a recent exchange by Rhyalus and myself.

don't need the Static IP. You can go to ADVANCED -> Setup ->LAN Setup -> and use "address reservation" for your children PC.
