The homesafe homework settings currently give the option of 'Mon - Fri only', but of course for school the important nights to get to bed on time are Sun - Thu.  Would be great if you are able to review this setting Wink

I agree but TalkTalk's Homework Time is completely pointless. It does not block any web addresses starting with https such as SnapChat, Instagram and Facebook. Same applies to the porn filters - absolutely pointless.

@fraserbike Thanks for your suggestion. I've asked the question and will let you know as soon as I have more info.

Router scheduling would be the simplist solution, I am hoping that future firmware for the D-Link 3782 will incorporate this.

I agree homework time is not relevant - does not include what the kids need to be blocked from.  It's a nice idea to be able to leave a device active for educational sites but not games and social networking distractions but the blocked list would either have to be updated very frequently with all the latest games and networking sites or far more configurable by the user.  It would also be better if it could be applied to specific devices only rather than all devices.  Lastly only being able to schedule in one day is not optimal.  I would like to block access to games from 8pm until 8am to discourage bedtime playing. 

 

Personally I would find the ability to schedule the time a specific device (or devices) can access the network by MAC or IP address far more useful.  I understand this is a feature of the DLink native firmware but not availble in the Talk Talk variant.  Please put into the next firmware update.
