Son keeps renaming Xbox to extend time limits

How do I stop my son from renaming his Xbox? I pause his WiFi at night and sometimes he somehow renames Xbox and goes back on!

Is your WiFi open/unsecured without a pin/passcode?  Can you change it to require a passcode to connect?

It sounds like the router is applying access rules based on device name. I'm not familiar with what you have, but is it possible to switch from device name to MAC address? The MAC does not change.

You need to set up a Family Account, set up your son's account as a Child Account, and lock him out of access that way.
