Hi there, please bear with me and be kind with my first post!
My daughter is going on the Internet far too much so I've managed to work out how to log into the router and set up the controls so she can't go on it past a certain time. Brilliant.
Now she has googled how to reset the router so that all of my configuring has gone.
I can set it up again but how can I stop her from just resetting it so that my settings stop affecting her?
Any help from a cross Mummy would be very much appreciated!

But she's used a paperclip to press the reset button on the side and all my settings have gone. Is there any physical way I can stop the reset button working? Glue? Open the box up and remove the button itself?

Glue may be the answer. Then it can only be reset from the web interface.
Or put the router in a locked box, with ventilation holes.
If there is only one device, like a PC, then a software solution may be better.

Well that really depends if she has written down the default password on the back of the router, if it was me I would note down the password and remove the label. Or confiscate her puter if it happens again, or if you share a pc remove the keyboard.
