Parental Controls

I have already asked the question about whether I can set up parental controls on just the Guest network that I have set up now.  Apparently that answer is "no".  So now my question is, is there a NETGEAR router that I can purchase will allow me to do that?  It seems ridiculous that NETGEAR or some other manufacturer has not seen that this is a good idea and that that functionality should be built into their routers. It just makes sense.

AFAIK, there's no NG model that can do this.

Routing: NETGEAR RAX43 - Firmware: v1.0.11.112 (1 Gbps down, 50 Mbps up)
Switching: 2x NETGEAR 8-ports (GS108v4) / 1x NETGEAR 16-ports (JGS516v2)

Which sort of parental controls?

 

Netgear has announced that it is killing the free Live Parental Controls. So don't get to rely on it.

 

NOTICE: Live Parental Control Service based on Ope... - NETGEAR Communities

 

It wants you to buy into Circle. Perhaps you could throw your question in the section given over to Circle?

 

Circle Smart Parental Controls - NETGEAR Communities

 

But Circle is a firmware service, and Cable Modem Routers are beyond Netgear's control. ISPs have a "keep your hands off" approach to that.

 

 

Just another user.
