    If you are having trouble with access restrictions, please detail it here. you must give enough detail so that somebody else can set it up as you have to replicate your conditions. IF the symptoms described are confirmed by another, i will screw with the setup of my network to be able to test, and fix the problem. i will only do this AFTER an access bug has been confirmed by a 3rd party.

    Everytime I enable the access restrictions with QoS active, I have problems with the machines that are on the access restrictions list. Somtimes some connections stay on these machines, but no new connections can be created (including DNS lookups).

    I've tried this a number of times, and it's repeatable. I've shut off access restrictions for the time being, and everything is working great! QoS is configured by application only, and access restrictions are time based by either MAC or IP range. (same problem)

    I've also done the 30 second reset and cleared NVRAM a number of times. Each time I reconfigure the same thing happens.

    I believe from a previous post that 'mstombs' is having the same problem. I quote his post below:

    I've had a problem with QOS active and access restrictions, but need to clear nvram and start from scratch before retesting ( couldn't last night as my cable was down!). But sounds suspiciously similar - internet access blocked on certain machines when it shouldn't be, like you I deleted the access restrictions (timebased on MAC address) and all was well! No port forwarding and QOS configured by application in my case.

    you haven't given enough detail to exactly reproduce your symptoms, how can somebody duplicate what you are describing without the level of detail necessary to do it. please post here, the contents of /tmp/.ipt and the output of "iptables -t filter -nvL, iptables -t nat -nvL"
    although this is presently unconfirmed, i will have a look and see if anything is wrong based on time based internet denying

    Sorry; I'm not knowledgable enough to know how to get those items you've requested. If someone would be kind enough to post detailed instuctions, I will gladly supply all the information I can.

    time based access denial confirmed using ip address

    Wow...that was quick! Thanks much! :cheer:
    I assume the fix will be in 15c when that's released?

    For future reference you go to the "Run command" on the router web screen Administration - Management, then cut and paste the result of entering the following commands (one at a time hit enter or RUN)

    cat /tmp/.ipt

    iptables -t filter -nvL

    iptables -t nat -nvL

    There's a lot of output which I have no idea what it means (and I deleted my problematic access rules while half asleep at 7am the other morning!)

    NB You can try any valid Linux command from this prompt, ie


    shows processes

    nvram show

    shows all the saved variables

    OK...thx. I'll save this for future reference.

    I'm pretty sure I was using MAC address to select machines - I assume this will be the same issue and needs no further experimentation?

    yes, it's the same
