Posted: Thu May 21, 2020 16:22 Post subject: Access Restrictions
I have updated original post to be more clear on issue at hand. This issue has nothing to do with filtering I will cross that bridge at a later date.
Ok this deny scheduling feature really doesnt make sense. So in simple terms I want to deny access to devices each day of the week from 21:00 to 09:00. This means for example on Monday starting at 9pm (21:00) access will be denied and then access will be restored on Tuesday morning at 9am (09:00), Tuesday at 9pm (21:00) access will be denied and restored Wednesday morning at 9am (09:00) and so on. When I try to setup this way using the times above I get the error that "End time must be greater than start time".
My logic as to how this function should work is as follows: Deny from = start time of access denial > Deny to = end time of access denial, so it is not unrealistic to expect that denying access starting on one day and restoring on another would be common but apparently that doesnt seem to be the case.
Can someone shed some light on what I may be missing or point me in the direction of specific/detailed documentation because as it is setup I feel I am looking at this correctly. Also as an FYI I have read the help page associated with the function and it also seems to align with my idea as to how it should work. Thanks.

hmm do you have correct time set....NTP time, use IP instead of name....!!??
those access restrictions ,will not work with https sites, also every time router restarts, it gets messy...
Do we know your router model and current build running...
and that is what you should've start with...guru's cant guess your set up or elase...you have to expose all your settings what you ve tried so far...what you want to achieve and so...
otherwise the level of help will drop down to zero (0)...
you can try with cron job's and iptables rules...
ggl it its easy...
if you'd need more parental control there are apps for it or may be other alternative routers os.... _________________ Atheros

I am looking for help on the times for access(see original post) Access Restriction>Access Policy>Days>Times I have for the time being given up on HTTP filtering and will review once I have resolved this issue. Current rev is Firmware: DD-WRT v3.0-r43171 std (05/16/20) running Netgear r7000 with NTP enabled and operating properly.
It is a known issue that if your access restrictions cross midnight, you have to have two rules. It is also known that you cannot have two rules in the same 24-hour period (i.e. one for Monday morning and one for Monday night), as you have discovered. I am not sure if there is also an issue with rules crossing noon. Sorry I didn't respond before, but I don't respond well to attitude - that zero help Alozaros was referring to. Perhaps try 11:59am?
Thanks for the feedback so it is an issue with the FW and I wasnt going crazy. Hope future updates address the issue in meantime will see what I can do to enforce access for kids devices.
