Block Devices from Internet

Is there a way I can temporarily block certain devices that are connected to the router from using the internet?

Like my brother, he isn't supposed to be on xbox after 8PM, and my Dad needs me to enforce it (since I'm the network admin in our house). Can I manually block his xbox from accessing the internet either at a certain time, or just by manually restricting it?

Re: Block Devices from Internet

You have to setup specific ip for Xbox using address reservation working the dhcp range under router GUI, lan setup

Then you need to make block services with schedule

I do set up every device to keep its ip once it connects under the lan setup page.

Re: Block Devices from Internet

Hello,
Maybe you could be kind enough to help me also. I'm pretty much trying to figure out the same solution as the other person regarding his Xbox....
I followed your instructions on how to reserve ip adresses for all devices, then I can shut down services according to planning, but is there a way to set different plans ?
Like allowing a device to access the internet up to a set time on weekdays, but let's say midnight on weekends ? and different time slots for different devices on the network ? The only thing i'm seeing so far is by installing bypass accounts on the opendns website, is there a way to manage it with the router' firmware?

Thanks in advance for any information

Re: Block Devices from Internet

Maybe my question was not precise enough.
Is there a way to set different tome plans for different devices ?

For example device x 192.168.1.2 gets shut down from all services at 8.00 pm
device y 192.168.1.3 gets shut down from all services at 9.00 pm
device z 192.168.1.4 gets shut down from all services at 11.00 pm
..............on sunday to thursday, but get a different time allocation on fridays an saturdays?....let's say till 2.00 am?

The way i'm seeing right now, i can set only 1 time plan from the router, wich would apply to any and all devices that I would list in that only available plan.
And then I could add a time block in the open dns web service, wich would apply to all devices.

I feel i'm forgetting something, there must be a way ?

Re: Block Devices from Internet

You need to install parental control on each device

Netgear.com/lpc

Setup up each user with correct schedule
