With only one PC with internet access and 5 users wanting internet access, the demands for computer time border on a war zone.
I have decided to link the childrens individual PC's to the internet via a wireless network but need to limit the time they spend on the net as well as where they spend that time.
I already have Norton pretty much figured for web access but need to be able to auto-disconnect their web access in terms of time, otherwise they will be on the web all night.
Which router can provide this, or can it be done via the XP user account???

Any recommendations will be appreciated.

Hi simonp,

I've got a Belkin Wireless G that has filtering features that should fit the bill. I had a niece and nephew staying with me and the wife and could not get them off the Internet (they both have laptops). My Belkin is my wireless subnet that sits behind another router/firewall and is for all the wireless devices in the house. So to get them off the Internet and allow them the time to do things like chores and homework I set up the filters to block access to the Internet on their laptops from 10pm till 7am and from 3:30pm till 7pm or until the dishes were done that day. I also had a filter for each of them that I could invoke when things didn't get done that denied them access for as long as I chose not to turn it back on. It was nice having slaves for awhile :whistling:.
