WiFi seems to not work on certain applications after around midnight

Sounds a bit weird that my wifi is not working for certain apps after around midnight it is fine for most as in youtube, tiktok etc. However when i try to use my Xbox, discord etc. The wifi will work but it wont and its hard to explain but for an app like discord when i use a VPN it is completely fine however i cant use a VPN on an Xbox any ideas?

It sounds like parental controls have been enabled. If you're the account holder, you can disable them. If you're not the account holder and your parents are, I suggest you speak with them.

You need to check in your MyBT account online. BT Parental controls are web based not settings in the router.

@Subrect I said about checking with your parent's because of the amount of kids that ask the same question after their folks have blocked them from late night gaming 🤣

Check your parental controls through MyBT to make sure they're not active as that could be your reason.
