Hi everyone. Been using fingbox since they first shipped. I finally have something it cannot do (I think).

I want to block a device from a accessing the internet but only after 90 minutes usage and only do it between the hours of 7am and 7pm. Outside of that I don't want restrictions.

Any thoughts??

    I think that is much more complex than it at first seems....  Not a clue how you could do this on the FingBox, and even on a router which allows user scripts you'd probably have to write a kind of programable egg timer.  If you did all that I can see that it could be easy to circumvent with much less trouble that it would be to implement!

    Thanks, this would certainly broaden the appeal of the device to many parents.
