Parental control settings on Linksys E1000, E2000, E3000 routers
Open the Cisco connect software on your main computer. Cisco connect software is the software that comes with the Linksys E series router. You can not use Parental control settings or Guest access settings without installing the Cisco connect software.
Parental control settings:
When you open the Cisco connect, you will find the option Parental control settings.
Click on that option. It will open the parental control settings page. Using this feature, you can limit the Internet access of the devices in the network. When you set up this function for the first time, it will ask you create the password. Please create a simple password that you can remember because if you forget that password there is no way to retrieve the password. You will need to reset the router to the factory default settings. You can rename the devices in your network. Select the particular device from the list and limit the Internet access for that computer. You can specify timing for the Internet access. If you are blocking the access of kids computer then you can use the option during school nights.
School nights are: Sunday night to Thursday night.
Weekends are: Friday night to Saturday night.
