NBN PARENTAL CONTROL NOT WORKING - can anyone help :-(

Can anyone please advise of how to activate the parental control on the OPTUS NBN modem, I can access the modem enter the perimeters but still does not work, very frustrating, what's the point of having a feature if it does not work properly or easily, I have read of others with the same problem however I can't find an answer 

thanks in advance for anyone's help

It seems Optus disables parental controls in the modem. You can buy a premium parental control option from them seperately. (Not sure if that info is still current)

 

One option might be to set up a seperate wifi modem on your network and provide the password to that for your kids.

I cannot help. I have the F@st3864AC modem - the black one. It has a 'Parental Controls' menu item. The item (supposedly) allows restrictions - days and start/end times - on devices on the LAN. Is that what does not work for you?

 

If so, I hope that a moderator is able to enlighten you.

 

(edit) I forgot about the 'Parental Control' option under the Advanced Setup. It has settings for Time Restriction and URL Filter. Is this option your problem?
