Netgear Parental Controls are a huge disappointment.
Netgear should be sued for false advertisement. They way parental controls is done in their router is overly complex. If I want to block a specific device at specific times (say between 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.) and only that device I should be able to. I should not have to block all devices and make exceptions for devices that I want to allow access. These is backwards from anything I've seen in my 24+ years in IT. The way netgear does parental controls is more labor intensive and time consuming. I also imagine that the average computer user has a hard time trying to setup parental controls. I should be able to allow all devices on my network to access the internet and block a specific device at specific times during the day based upon that devices' MAC address, plain and simple. It is ludicrous that I need to create a bypass account for each device on my network that I want to allow access to the internet.
When will netgear simplify Parental Controls?
