Hope some one can help me with this, as it's not something I've ever actually done before.
A friend has become worried about the amount of time she spends online lately, she's noticed that with her new laptop (she used to use the library for net access) she can easily waste most of the day online and doesn't like it. As she isn't very good at controlling herself with it, she's asked for my help.
What I'd like to do is set up her router to shutdown net access during the day as she wants, and only give her access in the evening from around 7pm until around 11-12. Which is what she wants.
It's a Sky router, one of the black ones... not sure if these are rebranded netgear ones. It's the same as I have for my net.
Now I know my way around computers, it's what I've been doing for the last 10yrs to earn a living. But I cannot get this damn router to schedule it.
I've been testing it on mine, and still had net access both within and outside the scheduled time frame. I can access it via my PC and my phone. The PC is cabled, the phone wireless.
It's not something I've ever needed to do before, is there an easier way to do it? She's on Win 7... Won't know if it's 32/64 or specs of laptop until thurs/fri when I see her.
