BT Access Control has been enabled in the BT Home Hub settings but it doesn't work.
I've assigned the computer (let's call it, A) correctly to numerous block-times in the router settings page, but it still doesn't block internet access to computer A. I've also reset the router and it still doesn't work.
My BT Home Hub router version is:
Software version 8.1.H.J (Type A)
Does anyone know what is up with this?
make sure you use a static ip on the pc in question and not dhcp - i've set this up for one off my computers so it has no access after 8pm and it works fine
How do I make it so Computer A (has a wireless connection to router) uses a static ip and not dhcp?
I'm pretty sure Computer A uses dhcp, on numourous occasions when troubleshooting internet connection problems I get the suggestion to "Reset the DHCP device", doing so always restores/repairs my internet connection.
right-click the connection on pc, choose properties, select tcip/ip and change settings
but it depends if you yse a program supplied by the card manufacturer or windows networking
But access control is still not working. Here's what I've done:
Like you've suggested, I changed the TCP/IPv4 settings of the wireless connection ("Use the following IP address") to the corresponding fields in the command prompt using the "ipconfig /all" command.
I followed the instructions here:
I have also disabled the dhcp server in the bt home hub settings (Advanced Settings > Home Network > IP Addresses).
Yet, under: Advanced Settings > Home Network > Devices > Computer A, it still shows as "DHCP" in the "IP address assignment" field.
From the Advanced menu go to Home Network and look for Computer A and click on it.
From there you will see "Always use this IP address". Is the blue circle shown in "no"?
If so change it to yes, click apply and that should sort fixing the IP address.
Has anyone fixed this issue ? I am experiencing exactly the same issue. To clarify:
- Homehub Software version 18.104.22.168.83.2.11 (Type B)
- Devices have fixed IP addresses (yes - i've tried various devices)
- BT Access control is enabled
- Router has been reset
I am at a loss. I'm an experienced IT professional, and as far as i can see, the 'BT Access Control' is not working.
Has anyone else experienced/fixed this ?
