PostPosted: Tue Mar 06, 2007 6:29 pm    Post subject: Parental Controls Reply with quote Back to top

I just got my Vonage hooked up and it is working great. My problem is that I want to be able to disable some of my router inputs at 10:00 for parental control. I used to just unplug the modem and now I can't do that or the Vonage won't work. I have a Linksys BEFSR41 router and a D-Link Cable modem. Is there a way I can disable all of the router inputs except for the Vonage?

What kind of Vonage device do you have? Does it have an Internet "passthru" port?

If so, hook it up as follows:

Cable Modem -> Vonage Device -> BEFSR41 Router.

To kill off Internet access, all you'd need to do at that point is unplug power from the BEFSR41, or unplug the Ethernet cable between the Vonage Device and the BEFSR41.

I don't know if the BEFSR41 has any kind of parental controls, but you may be able to program it to shut down ports or connections at certain times. My WRT54G has that capability.

I don't want to disable the Vonage, just the other internet access. I have the Vonage VTA-VD if that matters.

ah, OK. Never mind. The VTA-VD does not have a passthru port, so you can't use it "in front" of your router.

I don't think the BEFSR41 has the ability to lock down ports by time of day or anything. Of course, you could simply unplug the computers from the BEFSR41, or you could get a router like the WRT54G that does have parental controls.

Thanks for your help. I figured that's what I would have to do, just trying to find an easier way than the manual plugging and unplugging.

I use the WRT54G which has excellent blocking capability. In fact, I can block individual devices. My daughter's computer is disconnected at 9PM and reconnected at 6AM except on Saturday night when I give her a couple of extra hours since she is a senior. But, my PAP adapter and my laptop is never blocked. Works like a charm. I also have a profile set up for when my kids misbehave so I can disconnect their internet access with one click. It is worth the money you will spend for the router.

A little off subect, but I also use a program that allows me to see the other computer screens so I can watch what they are doing. It is shareware, but I paid the fee because it works like a charm. I only had to interrupt them once and now they know Dad watches without notice.

It is important to control your children's access to the Internet. You are doing the right thing!
