Wifi Manager

Hi

 

I after an easy way to restrict the times that my children can access the wifi on their phones/laptops/Smart TV's

Tried to do it through the DSL router, but Im struggling.

Is there any easy way, or can anyone recommend an app or something I can buy that is really easy to manage?

Cheers

Hi

Most Netgear routers now support circle with Disney parental controls;

I have a Netgear Orbi system which gives you access to this control.

Re: Wifi Manager

Thanks, but do I need a Netgear additional router for this?

I only have the Optus one that was supplied...

Re: Wifi Manager

Yes, I am afraid you would need to buy an additional router.

If you wish to go down this route my suggestion would be an Netgear Orbi mesh system. Is very easy to connect to your Optus modem and supports the Disney circle. Plus you will get good wifi throughout your house.

Downside it will cost around $300 if you look around.

The price of children?
