Router with parental controls

Can anyone recommend a router that has parental controls so I can set a time for the internet to that connected device to switch off not just wifi but the ethernet as well? I currently have the VM Hub 5 so need something with good wifi as well

I do hope that there is something available like this as it would be useful to stop people at a property accessing inappropriate/disallowed content too.

Re: Router with parental controls

Asus routers have parental controls that can be set for specific devices.
Asus FAQ
Other manufacturers will certainly have similar features.


Check whatever manufacturers website for info on features for their products before buying.

I have a turris omnia with parental controls (PaKon) but I have never used it. It has good wifi and I use it instead of my vm hub for wifi around the house.

Re: Router with parental controls

I use a Fingbox to protect my home network.

All devices attempting to access are automatically blocked unless I use the app to unblock them.

It does allow me to set up access restriction to uses at sellected times.
