Wanna limit kids internetuse

Anyone knows if there is a Router or any other setup where I can set up my kid’s internetuse. I have setup my router now with timelimit, but from time to time, that can be problematic, since the schedule does not always fit. So what I wonder if there is some kind of hardware of software, where you can let's say, say kids can use the wireless network 3 hours weekdays and 8 hours weekends, more like a timeaccount.

You could have a look at the build in parental control in vista and/or win 7 (don't know what you use).

You can set up an account for your kid and apply a time limit to it. Perhaps that's an idea?

Maybe use something like http://www.netnanny.com/ - hardware with filters does exist but if you are looking at something for home use then its either less then efficient, or its expensive. Installing software like this on each machine will probably give you better results.

Netnanny (like most of the links which people will post) supports the usual content and time based filters. This thread is likley to have 100 different people posting 100 different products, all which do pretty much the same task - any of them work and most work in a similar way.

Just have a look around and see what suits your feature set and price range.

I use time restrictions on my tomato based firmware router and OpenDNS services which are all free. The tomato firmware offers granual control of time restrictions and the OpenDNS offers content filtering.

I've installed NetNanny for people and it has a fairly flexible calendar of usage and different ways to approach time limits (per session, calendar, etc.).  That said, others listed here are similar.  Most all of them have free trials that you can use, so I would use some of the links and suggestions you see here and try some of them out on a free basis.  Find the one that seems to work best for your situation and then purchase.
