I have 3 "accounts". The main account and 2 bypasses. The parental controls for the main house are set to block internet from 7pm until 3pm the next day as my children have kindles and I cannot use a bypass for them. There is a family computer bypass that has no time blocks and has fewer restrictions than the kindles for their homework and research projects. Then there's my bypass account on my personal laptop, as well as my phone and android tablet that has no restrictions.
Sometimes my bypass account works, sometimes it doesn't. I never log out of my bypass account on the devices I have bypassed. For some reason, nearly every night, I lose internet access at 9pm despite the fact that not only does my bypass account not have a cut off time nor any restrictions for me, but none of the accounts have a cut off at 9. It just seems to have decided I need to be off the internet at 9pm. It comes back on at random times...sometimes I can use the internet first thing in the morning and other times it will stay off almost all day. I have tried turning off the router, unplugging the router, restarting my devices, and nothing seems to solve this issue. And this doesn't even happen every day or with all devices at once. It's totally random. It also seems to be happening to not just my bypass, but the family computer as well. I tried to work on the other computer today and couldn't, because the family computer bypass was not working either. I can't even go to the parental controls account and turn it all off so I can work because you have to have access to the website, which is blocked, and the the phone app requires me to connect to wifi to use the app rather than just be able to use my data to go to the website. It's like I'm at the mercy of the whims of a menopausal cyborg router.
