Home network bypassing blocking devices.

  Kydhol 18:16 25 Jan 2018

I used a bt home hub5 for our home network. I log into the router and I can choose what devices on th network I can block and between times. Works perfectly unless you have a 15 yr old who is clever than you. ! He say he has set up a protocol (!) to get round my blocking. What can I do to block him ?? Help!!

Well. You could use the sledgehammer approach and turn the router off. As many will recommend here.

Why should the rest of the family suffer !! There had to be a way !! He is clever and will end up in computing. But he needs to go to bed !

Change the admin password on the router to one he doesn't know and can't guess.

I agree. However you haven’t mentioned how your going about blocking his device.
