As you can see I have a TD-W9970 and a problem/issue with settting restrictions with Parental Control.
I have tried to set up parental control following the manual provided.
I have first set a MAC Address of the parental PC and clicked Save.
I have selected the MAC address of the hardware I wish to restrict internet access to at certain times of the night.
I encountered an issue that the hardware (a television) was restricted all internet access at all times, not the desired times I selected.
To test this I set up the below parameters (see screenshots) and tried both set ups, and also allowed the hardware access to two sites (wikipedia and tplink). Both attempts were not successful as both parameters completely blocked the internet from the hardware (TV) from using.
It is necessary to block the MAC addresses of hardware connected to my network via ethernet and wireless.
I do not wish to provide static IPs for any hardware. As this was not highlighted when purchasing the router/modem I do not desire it as an answer.
I have provided two screenshots below, and have protected the MAC address I selected with XX.XX.XX.XX.XX.XX and pixelating for security protection and giving details over the internet.
Example 1. I have censored the MAC address.
Example 2. I have censored the MAC address.
Please reply with suggestions or fixes in order to set correct parameters so that I can create a time where the hardware is restricted access to the internet. I need to block via MAC Addresses and do not wish to set up a schedule to turn off the wifi or ethernet completely, however if this is the only option I will have to do this. I have already set up a schedule to turn off the wifi at certain times anyway, so in the last resort I would be asking for a schedule to turn off the ethernet too at certain times. If the Parental Controls issue I am facing cannot be fixed.
