    I'm trying to restrict access to the internet on one of the PCs in my home network during certain times (days/hours) and have been unsuccessful. I am hoping that someone can clarify the following in the "Access Restrictions" area of the router setup:

    First I select an Internet Access Policy, and assign the MAC address of the PC in the list of PCs.

    Just above the "Enter Policy Name" drop-down it has two radio buttons for "Status" - Enable and Disable. Below the list of PCs is are two radio buttons for "Allow" or "Deny" during specific days and times.

    My question is this: If I select "Disable" does that disable all Policies? If so, is the default wide open access for all devices? If the Policy is "Enabled" are all devices not specifically noted in the list allowed access? Conversely, if internet access is set to "Allow" are all devices not specifically named restricted from accessing the internet?

    I've tried several different configurations and I'm clearly missing the boat somewhere as I have yet to be able to restrict access to anything.

    Thanks in advance.

    You have to enable an restriction for it to be in effect. You can enable one or more policies. You can disable a specific policy. When you deny a computer and enable the policy the computer cannot access the Internet for that period of time. There was a bug in the access policy at one time, where only the first policy works.
