How do i pause just my guest wifi and not the main wifi?

Sukiw
Just Moved In

My Son has managed to by pass my parental controls by creating new Mac addresses.

 

To outwit and outplay my son, my strategy is to have all his devices using the guest network and then pause all...

Does anyone know how to just pause the guest wifi without disrupting the main?

Afterall, I don't see why I need to suffer when he does....hahahah.....maybe the evil laugh is more appropriate here..

 

Would love to hear from other parents about how they outwitted their teens and maintained control besides physically taking the X-Box away....

 

Game on! The fight is real!

I believe the only option is to login to the T3200M and disable the Guest network as needed.

 

See this post for setting up a Profile for kids and then pausing that:

Not sure of the impact of changing the mac address on this.

Take a look at the Telus My Wi-Fi app. There are options to pause individual devices. Additionally you can create a profile and modify access to devices in that profile.

Good luck!

Thank you for your reply! I did have that set up but he figured out he can bypass the control by changing the mac address of his xbox and then just logs on to our wifi. 

I don't want to have to pause all of our internet because I cannot be without internet on my devices and the above negates a pause on just his profile. 

 

I thought if I could use the guest wifi with only his devices, then I can shut him out at night at least by pausing this wifi for all his devices and not mine...

I just need to figure out how to pause just the guest internet and not the main....if  possible.
