Hi. I have just fitted the Sagecom FAST 5364 and the WiFi signal certainly seems better than the previous jobbie.
However, I don't know how to adjust things like allowing access to certain devices (yes, I mean turning off certain phones at bedtime...)
I can turn off the whole WiFi easily enough, but this isn't what I wish to do. How can I even fully delete individual devices such as from folk who were only visiting for a day?!

Whilst I can provide you with my unofficial manual, you cannot do what you want with restricting access to devices at night. You can restrict access to any WiFi device via MAC Address Filtering, but this is not time based & anyway it is no longer considered to be a secure feature. Some access can be controlled within MyAccount, such as Homework Time etc.
I'm not looking for an automatic feature, just the ability to log on and remove the WiFi from certain devices at will. On the previous Huawei, I could allow all, none or tick boxes for the listed devices I wished to have/not have WiFi. This is not possible on the Sagecom?!
It is only the scheduling facility that is not provided. MAC address filtering is available on the WiFi.
You can't delete any devices from the main device listing on the Advanced settings page, if this is what you want, short of doing a factory default. However, it does not show inactive devices. There were all sorts of bugs with this in firmware 2600, but these are fixed in 2808.
Thanks again Keith, and sorry for the late reply - swapping PCs...
My Sagecom does have the latest firmware you mention - 2808.
TalkTalk, is this correct? You are seriously telling me that on this new super-dooper WiFi router that once a device is signed up to it it cannot be removed?! You have got to be kidding. Surely?
I now have no control over my kid's use of WiFi on their A-level years, short of me physically taking their devices off them?
This is nuts.
