I want to shut down my daughter's ability to use her internet for a portion of the day.  How do I do that?

Get a router with parental controls and connect it behind the att gateway.

So we need hardware additional to the att router to institute parental controls to the att router?

Does it matter what brand?

Great question, @Equick.

We would love to help clear up any confusion.

You can configure DMZ+ or IP Passthrough for any brand residential 3rd party router, but it is not guaranteed to work with every device.

Keep in mind that our Internet Security Suite also has parental control options available, and is free of charge if you have a connection speed of more than 3 MBPS.

Let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
