Default Block IPOD Access to Router

How do I block router (WNDR3700) access for my sons IPOD touch between say 9pm and 8am? I tried using the router help but just can't get there.
Do you use the IPODs MAC address?

thanks
mcrawford

you can not block by mac address on home end. IP only.

Main Menu -> Lan setup -> Address Reservation -> Add the IpodTouch to have it's own fixed IP.
Main Menu -> Block Services -> Pick Add, Add in the IP for your sons IpodTouch
Main Menu -> Block Services, Change it to Per Schedule.
Main Menu -> Schedule, set up the times you need.

If your son is good with computers he will just assign his ipod a static IP and go around the IP reservation. It's possible that the Ipod and router will ignore the reservation anyhow.

Once it's all set up restart your router (this will flush the DHCP table) and once the Ipod latches on for the first time make sure it has the correct IP.

On the Ipod Touch you can go into Settings and block things such as in-app purchases, and I THINK you can make it so they cant reconfigure network settings either. If so then I would configure the ipod to have the IP that you set in the router.. Even if both are set to have the same fixed IP then all is okay.

Once it's all blocked dont forget to put the settings lock in place ;P... If it's jailbroken they can remove the lock, and their screen lock has nothing to do with your lock so both types are happy to be on the ipod at the same time.

With this router can you not put the ipod on a guest access and turn off the guest access when required - that is what I do currently with my Belkin N1 Vision.

What I would like the 3700 to be able to do, is turn off a guest access on a timer - is that possible? i am thinking of buying one of these if I can get it to do what I need...

Thanks

there is not time on any of the unit

you will need unit like guestgate.com

device is made for wifi hotspot but you will have more setting to control the time and to block it.

Thumbs up Re: Block IPOD Access to Router

OK - thanks, that's interesting - also from the point of view that guest network logins should ideally isolate the logged in machines from each other as well as from the main network...

What about the Netear 'Live Parental Controls' ? I'm struggling to find much detailed information on this wihout downloading it and testing for myself - trouble is that my DG834g does not support the system...

Thanks

Talking Re: Block IPOD Access to Router

Yes i have seen the info webpage here... http://powershift.netgear.com/lpc

It doesn't really give enough detail. A user manual or something like that would be useful...

Also I have read in places that people are unable to get the bypass accounts to work. This would create BIG problems for us LOL (Wifes computer must function at ALL TIMES! )
