Parental control ax1800

Understood ax1800 uses ad guard for parental control. I can’t find info if ad guard allows blocking devices for certain period of time, like block device 1 12am-6am for example. Anyone can chip in? Thanks

You can currently do this in Luci, through the firewall:

Adjust the parameters according to your configuration.

  1. Navigate to LuCI → Network → Firewall → Traffic Rules.

  2. Click Add and specify:

  • Name: Filter-Parental-Controls

  • Protocol: Any

  • Source zone: lan

  • Destination zone: wan

  • Action: reject

  1. (Optional) If you want to add a MAC or IPlimitation, on the Advanced Settings tab specify:
  • Source MAC address: 00:11:22:33:44:55

  • Source IP address:

  1. On the Time Restrictions tab specify:
  • Week Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

  • Start Time: 21:30:00

  • Stop Time: 07:00:00

  1. Click Save, then Save & Apply.

You can add another rule to apply time restrictions on weekend.

Actually this can be done using openwrt’s built-in firewall.

I tried before and it works good. Only thing is that I have convert all time to UTC.

Thanks, can you immediately kill a device? Through time setting I’m guessing? Thanks

You set a time frame for the device to use Internet. When time is not in that frame, the device does not have Internet.

But to kill a device any time, just use the function in the default UI.

Ah there s an internet pause function in default ui? Thanks

You have this button. Toggle it to turn on/off Internet.
