    Hi guys,

    I have a wireless router that our laptops and consoles can all access. I want to be able to restrict access to the consoles and the kids laptops so they're not on them in the middle of the night.

    Please help.

    I have looked at the links and they do not apply for my router, it is a w ifi from Sky. :(

    Thanks for the help.

    Does anyone know what I can do now?

    You could just unplug the router before you go to bed each night ;)

    What make and model is the Sky router you are using ? Tat would make a great help. Aldo with the laptops You could use Admin account to create user accounts and set/grant persmisions that will allow or not allow them to certain things :)

    The sky router is locked down harder than a.... well. you know i believe.

    However, the standard Anytime stuff doesn't come via the phone line or via the router.. ;)

    I haven't had either of my boxes (1x 1Tb and 1x Sky+HD) connected to the phone line for literally years.

    Only since sky has opened up anytime+ to non Sky BB customers have i connected it.

    The Sky Router is a 'Sky Sagem F@ST2504n'

    Sky were ringing me when the box wasn't connected and demanded it was plugged in as they could tell. I'm not sure what to do now. :(
