    would you give me detail info? I am still confused. say, in my home LAN, I have 5 device, my child have 2 device, PC and smartphone. I want block him using internet 9pm to next day 5pm. my understanding, bypass account is  account which free from restrictions. but I need set restriction first.

    in openDNS account, I can only see my routor. I want set restriction for the devices connected to my routor. very confuse!

    please provide detail instructions. thanks.

    The detailed instructions are what I linked to. I don‘t have any more details.

    reading the instructions, seems, it set general restrictions. and then set exceptions by add openDNS account and set account as bypass. that is not a friendly design. in order to bypass, you need install app to login openDNS account. 

    if you have 10 devices, and you only want restrict 1 device, you need install openDNS app on other 9 devices. if you have smart TV, you can't install app, and you can't bypass.

    netgear parent control is a nightmare! it should be removed from netgear routor! don't fool people, and waste time.

    thank you, rotblitz, for your response.

    I tend to agree with you. You better use plain OpenDNS on only the devices where you really want it.

    And times of internet access has nothing to do with LPC or OpenDNS. It can be a local router function only.
