Dear folks

Simple task can't get it work

https://www.askdavetaylor.com/enable-parental-controls-linksys-wi-fi-router/

Tried to block internet access for one of my iPhone for testing purpose (it has dummy SIM means no cellular data)

Enable Parental Controls (i.e it is ON)

Choose a specific home device that I want to block then choose option : "Always" ,,,,,,,,,,,,my router screenshot same as the link above

Click Apply

But it didn't work !!!!

Tried another iphone same issue

I have latest firmware and I did restart the router as well

Am I missing something ?

Thanks

Just a thought. Both Apple and Android phones can randomize their MAC address. I can't guess how you or Linksys identifies the devices but if I turn on MAC address randomization then I can break through the first gen parental controls on most routers.

Maybe it's this simple issue that you have to get back to the maker to ask for a new system or how-to.
