Is there a router product for home network that would allow one to block www
access by setting a time window of access for a particular cable port or by
the mac address? This to limit kids use of ww after hours vs manually
pulling the plug.

Any thoughts?

About any today's router will make it for you as long as you set an ip
address to each
computer instead of using DHCP server of the router. That way, you will be
able to block access to the net
for a particular address at specified day and time.

My Netear router has that feature and it's just a basic MR814.

The Belkin PreN router has that.

On the Client IP filters setting page: ip, port range, tcp/udp/both,
day of the week and time.

Belkin routers do exactly this. You can set access times for each
service and use IP address.


From router config help page of my Belkin F5D7632


"Client IP filters

The Router can be configured to restrict access to the Internet, e-mail
or other network services at specific days and times. Restriction can
be set for a single computer, a range of computers, or multiple
computers. To restrict Internet access to a single computer for
example, click "Add PC" enter the description and IP address range of
the computer you wish to restrict access to in the "Client PC IP
Address" fields. Next select the Service that you want to block by
clicking on "Blocking". Click "OK" ". The computers at the IP address
range you specified will now be blocked from Internet access. "

"URL Blocking
To configure the URL Blocking feature, specify the websites
(www.somesite.com) and or keywords you want to filter on your network.
Click "Apply" to activate the change. To complete this configuration,
you will need to create or modify an access rule in the "Access
Control" section. To modify an existing rule, click the "Edit" option
next to the rule you want to modify. To create a new rule, click on the
"Add PC" option. From the "Access Control Add PC" section check the
option for "WWW with URL Blocking" in the Client PC Service table to
filter out the websites and keywords specified."
