Looking through various forums and other info it seems that the 3801HGV does not offer the option of parental controls by device and time of day. I have seen references for workarounds but am hoping that AT&T might have since realized that this is a feature that some of us might value and might now provide equipment with these features.
Since it has been a while since we had this equipment installed, I'll ask -- is there an upgrade to this equipment that does have the ability to employ parental controls?

At this time, personally, I do not believe the 3801 has this parental control feature nor do I think a newer model with that feature is available. On TV of course....parental control on channel by channel basis is available. But that is incorporated into the DVR.
I think that some external routers do have this capability. Some folks have connected one of these behind the 3801. My NetGear router has parental controls but I've never used them....as only my wife and myself are still at home. The kids are long grown and gone.
This subject has come up in other posts and I get the impression that no one knows of any plans for AT&T to incorporate this feature into the RG. But, then, we subscribers don't get notified of that sort of thing in advance. So who knows? Perhaps one of the other forum members has more info than I do.
