Network access restrictions for Kid devices

Hi All,

I used to set my kid's device access restrictions through the router Wireless Gateway at address 10.0.0.1. Now when I go to "Parental Control" "Managed Devices" it directs me to use the new xFi app.  In this program there is a bedtime mode where I can set only one period of time for access restriction.

 

I used to be able to set several windows of restricted time in the Gateway, for example 10-11 am, 1-3 pm, and then 9 pm to 8 am.  Now with xFi I can only do one with bedtime mode.  Is there some way I can get back to multiple restrictions, either through xFi or by the Gateway?

 

It was great to have several down times for my kid's devices.  It seems now this is lost.  Any advice is appreciated.

 

Chris

I used the gateway to control my kids devices and it worked great. I recently uploaded the Xfi app and it too works great. The problem I have right now is that I had one device still blocked when I downloaded the app. When I set up the profile for the app in Xfi, it says the device is unpaused but the device (Iphone5) shows it is still paused and has no Internet access. Now when I go to managed devices in the gateway, it does not allow me the ability to unlock the device. How can I resolbe this?

Cbo50. Thanks for your feedback. You can adjust the bedtime time frames for weekend nights and school nights. Additional options (which I think is a more flexibility option) is manually pausing one or all of a specific user group of devices.

DaddyO4, have you tried removed the device from the trusted device list and then adding it back again?
