Re: Rogers Hitron CGNM-2250 - Customize Access Settings?

Have you all heard of Linksys Smart Wi-Fi?

 

It allows the parent to blockoff times of an hour. I had my sons iPhone set as follows:

 

No access:

9pm - 7am

4pm - 6pm

Access:

6pm - 9pm

 

My younger guy:

 

No access:

8pm-8am

 

Access:

3 - 4pm

 

No access:

5-6pm

 

Access

7-8pm

 

Off he goes to bed!  It was great.... now I have this Hitron CGN that will allow blocking overnight or during the day, but nothing in comparison the the Smart Wi-Fi of Linksys!  Also, the Devices all came in a list, all you had to do is to select edit, and hilite squares = Hour(s)/day.

 

I'm looking for a 3rd party s/w that will do this.  I really wish Linksys could work. 😞

It can.

All you have to do, is go into the gateway, and select the option to "turn off commercial gateway".
This will put it what is called BRIDGE MODE.

After making that setting, the unit will reboot.  Make sure everything is unpluged from it.

First thing to plug in, would be your linksys (or any other 3rd party router).  Best to do it from a CLEAN wipe on the linksys as well.
The linksys will connect to the modem, and take over for ALL routing and wireless functions... the linksys will have the MODEMS IP address, etc..  the built in stuff completely out of the picture.

I am having the same problem. 


I can input the MAC info and the time limit, but it does not want to save.

Have you tried to use the Manage function located at the right hand side of the Connected Devices list instead of manually adding the device?  I'm wondering if that would work as it should and allow you to specify the managed (blocked) times.

Hmmm. I'm trying to figure out the best way as well. Without having to purchase another router and setting up bridge mode.

 

Would be nice if we could set a number of time frames for each device, rather than being restricted to one.

I followed these steps in order to restrict my teen's access, but for whatever reason, it did not work and he still has access to the internet all night long. Help please.

When I add his device using "manage" and then save and then refresh the connect screen to see if he is still connected, it turns out he is. THis is very frustrating and the Rogers techs won't help.

Here's a link to the CGN3 manual.  If you haven't read thru this manual previously, take a look at page 99 and 100 which details the manage device function throughout the day.

It looks like a two step process, select and decide to manage the device, and then select the various times that are blocked (managed).  Is it possible that you are misinterpreting the red background which indicates that the device will be managed (access will be blocked), and a green background indicates that the device will not be managed (access will not be blocked)?

Further question on this issue of restricting time of usage.  I set the same time restrictions for both an android based phone in the house and a new ipod.  I found the restrictions worked as scheduled with the android but have restricted the ipod for what appears to be the whole day.  Both settings are identical.  Anything unusual with apple devices here?
