Hi everyone,

Anybody have thoughts or ideas how I can lock out my son from staying up till 6:00a.m. playing PC games? When using a Linksys or D-Link, we can easily set up Access Control lists based on IP or MAC address (which I prefer). We can have schedules to knock these machines off of the Internet. This is not so easy or obvious on the AEBS. I have read numerous post around using a public free DNS service but I am not comfortable with an external resource when I wish to control it internally.

Any help or suggestion is appreciated.

    Welcome to the discussions!

    Open AirPort Utility, click Manual Setup
    Click the Access tab below the row of icons
    On MAC Access Control, select Timed Access and follow the prompts.

    More info is available on pages 47-48 in the Designing AirPort Networks Guide

    The Extreme does not have the capabilities that you are looking for.

    Noticed this recently. You might want to investigate this and similar items. Try a google search for something like "limit connection time on the internet"

    Yes you could use the Linksys that way.
