Shut done wifi from kids at night

Is there a way to turn off wifi at a certain time at night for kids. will that turn off tv too, or just remote devices like iPods?

Log in to your router's admin page and navigate to parental controls.  you can use the parental controls to do what you want.

That said, as said above, you need to create a really good password so your children can't log in and change the parental controls settings.

Re: Shut done wifi from kids at night

Some routers have the ability to shut don WiFi access on a schedule, or block access to certain devices, based on MAC address on a schedule. Either way means that your kids should not have access to your router/gateway. The ultimate defense is to unplug the gateway or modem, and take it to bed with you!! Smiley Happy

Thanks, this did work. I could even do it by device, so I could shut down the kids devices and not parents. I also could do weekends at a different time than weekdays.
