Blocking certain local computers

    Our home router is located in my room, but my mom wants to control my siblings' access to the Internet because they won't sleep even if it's getting late. I can't just unplug the line because when I'm not there, they'll just go into my room and plug the cable back in.

    My question is: where can I configure the settings to control their access to the Internet? I don't need a time limit or anything. I just need to be able to turn the settings on to stop them from accessing the Internet.

    Simply create an Access Restriction rule like the following that specifies your sibling's computers as the target systems and then enable/disable as needed.


    (Note that the rule should be configured to Deny, not Allow access like I accidently showed in the picture.)

    I have a different router (DI-704P) and I found a similar page, but I do not know how to work through it.


    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    You may be surprised to discover this but I'm not that familiar with D-Link's Access Control features. (The name of this site is LinksysInfo for a reason...) :roll:

    But if I had to guess I'd probably try configuring the Default group rule to allow ports 1-65535.

    Then configure the Group 1 rule to block ports 1-65535 and assign your siblings' IP addresses to the rule.

    Beyond that I'd suggest you press the Help button and find a forum (Like maybe this one) with people who actually use your hardware. ;)

    Good luck
