Exclamation Linksys router time settings

Hello all! This is my first post here, so I hope you guys can help me!

I have a teenage daughter who just won't get off Facebook at night, so I wanted to set my Linksys wireless router to turn off at night at a certain time to encourage her to get to bed.

In the interface, there are "simple" settings to specify when it works and when it shouldn't, but I can't get it to do a thing.

Does this function really even work at all, or is it just one of those things that sounded good at the factory but never quite wored out?

Thanks!

Rob

Hi Rob

Not a thing in the Linksys that I know about but it comes down to who's in control the parent or the child ..sometimes you need to put your foot down..good luck with that ..after all that's why they put a power switch on the Computer..

Put the router in your bedroom and attach a timer to it. Then buy a real router and get started in woodworking!

Are you using Firefox or IE to access the router? If FF, try it with IE.
I had that problem with my D-link router.
Password protect the router.

Never, under any circumstances, combine a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

Here's how I would work it. You simply TELL her that at nine o'clock the router is going to go off. Either she turns it off or you do.

LOL. I'm not laughing at you, as I can see how this might be mistaken for a technical forum, but this a woodworking forum.

you can access Linksys Router settings by opening a web browser and typing in: http://192.168.1.1/

if you haven't set a password for accessing the control panel, then just click OK at the user/pass screen.

then you can go in the settings and see what is available for your router model.

easiest way...just unplug the linksys and make sure she doesn't have an iPhone or other net phone where she can continue to play all night.

Alternatively, you can lock the router in a cabinet, and control it using X10 technology. Then it is easy to set on/off times and noone can argue with it. You can also do the same with your telephone system. If they're yackin' they ain't learnin' and yackin' leaves nuthin' but learnin' is good for the rest of her life. Quitin' whilst I'm ahead!

You don't get it in the 'states, but one of our community channels carries chronicles of 3 schools in Wuhan (I think) China. They know what facebook is but the students don't have time to go home, they're too busy studying and competition is fierce to get into school, let alone a good one.

Seeing how this is a wood working site there are many options open to you, A wooden mallet, a pair of side cutters or even power nailer spring to mind.
However what I would recommend is to simply tell her that the Links Systems have started to fail, the situation seems to be hopeless and thats it's time to pull the plug.
Then go out, get yourself a bugle, play taps and tell her it's time for lights out.

Retirement is easy, but You really have to work at it.
