8 Steps to Set Restrictions on Your Router


Using your router to set limitations on your network is a great way to boost overall security.  Restricting how and when connected devices are allowed to access the internet assures that your network isn't being taxed when you're not using it.  These types of restrictions include only allowing certain devices to access the router's network or setting time or day limitations as to when the internet is accessible.  Here are 8 easy steps to configure your router with access limitations:

Step 6:

Click the "Apply" button to save the restriction settings depending on your make and model of router.  The device may reboot before reloading the control panel.

Step 7:
