Default WNR2000 Service Block on Schedule not working properly.

Why will this router NOT shut down a port on schedule?

If I am connected to port 3724 prior to the scheduled No Access, the connection continues.

If I am NOT connected but try to connect after the scheduled No Access, I am not allowed to connect.

What I want to happen is...

At 11pm, regardless of port status, block ALL access to Port 3724 to entire network. If there is an active session on the port, shut it down.

Why is this so hard to do?

I have gone through half a dozen products from various vendors and found nothing to do this.

Is this possible?

what you found is typical function of block works.

so it will not shutdown at certain time and you will also not going able to go ever 24hrs time.

11PM~ goes tto 11:59PM if even you want to 7PM because that is not 24hrs time frame. 24hrs is..... 12AM to 11:59PM

June;

Thanks for the reply...

Ok...I get that this is typical behavior for this device or even this class of device.

Is it possible to do what I want at all or am I just wasting my time.

I am trying to avoid turning off the internet at 11pm. Sometimes I like to stay up late and surf. Sometimes my wife gets insomnia and surfs the web rather than turn on the TV.

I just want to stop the warcarft during the quite time of the night.

Do I need to move up to something like an Astaro gateway or get an enterprise class device like a Cisco 2600? (ebay is a wonderful place for off lease enterprise equipment.)

Thanks for the input.

I think the situation is as June said, already active connections are not stopped at the scheduled time, but new connections are.

If you powered the router from a digital power timer socket then you could power down the router for one minute, just after the scheduled time starts so that when it powers up it will not allow the connection again. This will ‘glitch’ all connections for about two minutes, but is a cheaper option than a new router.

Well, I must say, that is a pretty poor way to implement "Parental Controls".

It seems to me that if you set the router to deny access to Port XXXX at 11pm, then at 11pm Zero traffic should go in or out on Port XXXX regardless of the state of anyone's connection at 10:59pm.

Anything less is NOT "Control".
It's a big GAPING HOLE in the security of the device.

With the exception of this MAJOR flaw, the device works just fine.

I expected more from Netgear than other manufactures.

Do the folks at Netgear pay attention to these Forums?
