    I have

    ManufacturerMotorola
    Model NumberNVG589

     

    How can I set some devices to only have access during a time window.  Say, I want to block some devices between the hours of 10PM and 6AM?

    Hey sosebee05,

    • Allows children to request permission to visit unauthorized websites and lets you approve access.
    • View your child's online activities including mail and Internet surfing history with report cards.
    • Conveniently manage account settings from any web-connected computer.
    • Tamper controls alert you if others attempt to change the settings.
    • Manage your setting with a master account that can activate parental controls on up to 10 sub accounts.

    Does this software allow the administrator to limit time for all devices?  It appears it is only useable on the device that it is installed on.   I don't see any tab that controls individual devices on the behalf the the Uverse router

    The Uverse RGs do not have parental controls....

    If this is a feature you desire will need to purchase your own router and place behind the Uverse RG.

     

    If you have a Pace/2Wire product will be using DMZ mode while Motorola products will be IP pass through.

     

    Check link on main forum page for setting 3rd party devices for more information.
