We have:
1*Desktop (XP)
1*Desktop (7)
1*MBP
3*Laptops (7)
Xbox 360
Airport Extreme Router
Printer (Wireless)

At the moment the router software is on the MBP.

The network is only used for sharing internet connection and printer.

I’m after a solution that allows me to have the wireless network constantly available but have control over which computers have access and when. All our kids have computers and they are using them way too much and I’ve come to the conclusion that electronic control is the go, rather than getting all ninja on their arse etc. My only option at the moment is disconnecting the router which is a pain…. As then every device loses out.

I don’t really need filtering or anything, simply an on/off button to gain or deny access to specific computers. If it has some calendar set-up would be handy (ie: computer A has access between 6-8pm daily, computer B 24hr access, etc).

So can any one point me in the right direction? I’ve had a google but any user recommendations preferred, especially if the user has slayed dragons before. It would also be good if the software is free – but prepared to buy if necessary. Preferable to have the software on the MBP but can settle for the desktop with XP….

Cheers

with the wireless you could just enable mac address filtering, as for automating it all i think you would need to get ddwrt on your router or have a linux box set up to be your gateway. then you could just filter whatever you wanted whenever you wanted based on a schedule.

Never used that router, doesn't sound like it would be particularly flexible with this sort of thing.
Perhaps you could have the affected computers connect through a secondary access point or something like that, and only disconnect that one.

I meant to say, if a new router gives better options than I'll definitely consider a new one.

I was hoping to keep it as simple as possible... just some software that I can check a box (or something like that) to allow a particular computer access or not...

Am I dreaming it would be that simple?

I take it that you're using a 'Airport Extreme' based on the 'router software' on the MBP?

I think the most elegant way to approach this problem is to use the 'point of access' to the web to manage this for you.
Unless natively supported by your router, this is likely to cause you some headaches.

I can tell you that I've just upgraded from my housemates netgear pos (which was dropping out all the time) to a Fritz Box.

Not that it's massively likely to help you, but the Fritz box has all the features you just asked for (literally... you can schedule what items on your network have access to the net and when, and if you are happy to you can even apply 'power saving' features to turn your wi-fi off during hours when you wouldn't normally need (read: when you don't want anyone to have) access to the net.)

Shy of running some sort of proxy or firewall/gateway (which would need a computer on 24/7 to act as the host for said facilities; call in the linux fanboi's). So unless your router supports these kinda features, you're either s*** out of luck, or managing it as best you can right now (physically disconnecting the device) at the 'point of access'.

(you could run 'client' based stuff, but all that running 'net nanny' is going to do is increase the number of times your kids hit up google for 'how do I circumvent net nanny to ...')

Also, this reads a little awkwardly...
I don’t really need filtering or anything, simply an on/off button to gain or deny access to specific computers

so in other words, "I don't need filtering, I simply want an on/off button to filter..."

Happy to be corrected, but as I see it, if you want loads of 'per device' management options, you'll need to either look at replacing your current router (if it doesn't support this type of 'scheduling') or look at running some additional hardware to 'filter' connections (by device) for you.

Surely there are routers that allow you to set time based ACL filtering. A quick google came up with something like this:

TL-R470T

Access Control Parental Control, Local Management Control, Host List, Access Schedule, Rule Management


PS I don't know anything about the particular device above it was just used as an example of the existence of something like what you might be looking for. Also I know it isn't a modem etc but this feature must be available in something easier than running another machine with Smoothwall etc.

I think what mission is after is an easy way of turning his kids 'net off, amirite?
if they're not terribly computer savvy, all I would do is turn off something like DHCP at night time and reboot the router
leave your own computers with statically assigned IPs and set your kids up with DHCP, as soon as you turn DHCP off they will lose internets and you guys can keep surfing

that would have be one of the least complex ways of doing it - ie no pfsense/smoothwall box to configure

That is a clever way to rework it Teq, but it wouldn't take me long to work my way around that (admittedly I'm not the target audience).

The bigger problem with that as I see it is that it isn't a 'set and forget' solution. It does solve the 'As then every device loses out.' problem, but I'm sure going through this rigmarole would get old... fast.

Sorry, I meant filtering as in filtering websites etc like pronz and bombz

teq, yes.

I really don't want additional hardware (unless replacing the router is the best option), and I'd really prefer not to have to reboot stuff. I'd just like an interface where I can grant or deny access to the wireless network and therefore to the internet.

Maybe a fancy new router that has these options is the go... I'll investigate.

I agree, but its a cheap way to implement it instantly and involves no extra hardware or software
if he was prepared to turn an old machine into a firewall those options have already been presented (smoothwall/etc)

You could very easily setup a job to run every night & every morning, turning off/on the 'net to individual PCs based on the time

The Fritzbox ADSL router allows you to allow and deny any device on the network, set up time based scheduling as well as a tonne of other things.

This is a screenshot of the child protection filters which allows you to do the time based net as well as a bunch of other things.

Another easy option might be mutliple wifi broadcasts? Set up a wifi broadcast for each device or a group and turn it off as you want them on/off the network. I am not sure if your device will have this capability

its expensive but i love it especially if you are using VoIP phones best VoIP i have ever used!!! the other good thing about fritzbox is you can have wifi for guest (which means they have access to the internet for certain amount of time) but cant access your network :)

the fritzbox is also future proof for FTTH as you can use one of the GBit LAN ports as a WAN.

Interesting thread.

I need to do the same at our football club. We have free Wireless-N Wifi but I want to schedule it so it's only available during the times the club is open so someone doesn't come down in the night and leech the f*** out of it (probably low risk considering the location of the club, but if it's easily preventable then I will take that route).

Nope. Don't rush out and buy a new router. This should be an easy setup.

You can even set up accounts with time constraints for the best in parental controls.

He doesn't need a billion. His airport extreme will do it as mentioned above. Also Airport Extremes one of the best routers around. Even if you have nothing to do with other Apple products.

Taken from Anantechs review: http://www.anandtech.com/show/4577/airport-extreme-5th-gen-and-time-capsule-4th-gen-review-faster-wifi-/9

I guess the reason that I personally use an Airport Extreme (in conjunction with another device for NAT) is that it's really one of a small number of 802.11n dual-band APs I've tried that actually works without locking up, becoming unstable periodically, dropping the session from overheating when being pushed to 100% for hours, or requiring a daily reboot. There are just so many other consumer level 802.11n APs that either fall short or are incredibly frustrating and unreliable. Thus far, I've been using an Airport Extreme Gen 5 and Time Capsule Gen 4 as my primary AP with over 12 devices attached to each one for the greater part of a month without a single instability. It's that kind of stability that really sells it for me, even with 3x3:3 out of the picture.

That kind of sums up WiFi in general—ideally, it should work and be something transparent to the user instead of a constant consideration. I wager the vast majority of Airport Extreme and Time Capsule owners have no idea what 3x3:3 is or how to even check their physical link rate, and for the most part that's a testament to how stable these devices are. Maybe that's the reason why Apple doesn't make a super huge note about changes like markedly improving their WLAN connectivity. One thing is for certain, Apple's wireless division is either playing it incredibly cool, or honestly not getting the credit it deserves.

I run a captive radius portal for WIFI handled by clearos for weblogin

Next is selling my micro server and the drives downgrading from 5x5k300 2tb to as many 500gb mdl sas as I can get my hands on and a DL380G7 with a spare sas cage, I have an expander which will be fine for the job to service the second cage. Going to throw SE11 and use comstar to feed the VM box. Also on the cards after the tax year is two copper intel x520 nics so I can move into 10gbe country.


Minster for finance and war has approved my cisco lab so as of next Monday its
3 x Cisco 1841's 2 x ADSL HWICs 2x Serial HWIC's maybe a Etho HWIC 2 x 2950's and borrowing some 2900's

Whole box and dice runs like lighting and is very solid, once I get this lab s*** done and dusted I might actually get around to a how to clearos thread for trog that I promised years ago

As Jayman has said twice, the Airport Extreme serves this functionality.

Jayman I read really positive things about the 'Airport Extremes' when they launched, and yea, Wireless N was a good selling point for them (that is, dual band N that actually works). I had one for a little while but opted to return it as I thought $200 was overkill at the time (and as I didn't own any mac's at the time, I really didn't like the 'application' needed for configuration. That and the gui for making changes to the router config really isn't well layed out at all plus you'd still need to shell out for a Modem(not a big deal, but at $200 for the router, the extra $40-60 for a modem sorta feels like 'salt in the wound'.))

In all seriousness, as I said at the start (and had a good roll going in the middle there for a little while) if you ARE in the market for a new Router, and want something feature heavy, Fritzbox 7390 FTW.
looking at the interface for it in pictures, it looks kinda gumby/awkward, but it seriously took me 10 mins to hook it up, log in to the web, and set all the IP address reservations and port rules I wanted. The interface for it is BY FAR the best I've used on a domestic network appliance.

Thanks for the replies, bit seedy today so haven't tried anything out yet!

Whoop: the software that controls the router is on the MBP, but it doesn't need to be left on.... if I want to change settings of the router, such as password, I use the MBP. I start the 'Airport Extreme' application and all the settings are there. The modem is plugged into the router. One desktop and the XBox 360 are wired to the router, other computers and printer are wireless.

Hardware: the router is awesome, I'd buy one again, super reliable (I've never touched a setting since I first turned it on when I bought it) and handles the home network with ease. Although, if it can't do these functions that I'd like, well that is a negative of it. My previous non-apple router before this one didn't do what I want either....

I'll look into all the options tomorrow, cheers.

The Airport range of network products doesn't have a web based admin page.

The 'Software' on the MBP is the configuration utility (which is available for PC also, it's just 'native' on Mac) for the Router.

So it'll be (Cloud)-->(his Modem)-->(his Airport Extreme Router (which is simply that. A router))-->(rest of his devices).

So grasshoppa, all becomes clear.

Do the kids have their own set PC's and they aren't allowed to touch the others in the house?

If they're using their own PC's and no one elsees, why not create a task in task scheduler that runs at a specified time that just runs the command "ipconfig /release" which will just release their IP address? Of course then I suppose it'll also disable their access to the entire netowork but it's an option.

well really you'd need a couple of tasks, one that runs at logon and again at 8pm that disables the network, and one that runs at 6pm that enables the network.

Just how tech savvy are these kids?

None of this passive aggressive bulls*** of oh they're using too much, I'll cut their net, oh they spoofed my mac address I'll just ban them by user name. More like oh they're using too much PC, set a shutdown script that runs at 9pm with a 10 minute warning to save all homework. If they get around it and I find them up at midnight off goes the power switch outside in the fusebox. I am the computer nazi.

Hi red I am far from a cisco expert, I can build a config make some adjustments copy and paste that's about the level of my understanding. Its for this reason I am starting to do some cisco study from ccna >> ccnp out of my own pocket

If you wanted to get a decent preforming router without the butt hurt I would opt for juniper. There is a reason why everyone is striping Cisco out of their data centers. I have seen huge Cisco shops entirely replaced and its gaining speed.


If you are looking at cisco then go buy a second hand modular unit and then next thing is whats your budget. Then you can simply buy the eHWIC's / HWIC's at your leisure

The 1941w would do the job

ADSL HWIC's
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/routers/ps5855/product_data_sheet0900aecd80394b7e_ps5853_Products_Data_Sheet.html

GBe HWIC WAN
EHWIC-1GE-SFP-CU
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/routers/access/interfaces/software/feature/guide/EHWIC_1_GE_SFP_CU_FM.html

You could even grab a 3G HWIC as well and run both or all three DSL / NBN / 3G

But its all not cheap at all, personally if it was me and you didn't want to spend 1.5K + on a home router (if you have intentions of doing some form of cisco study path then go for it) if not then do the following

1) Buy an HP micro server + some ram
2) Buy the management card for it - I like remote management of servers (and its cheap)
3) Buy a dual gbe nic HP nc360T intel 1000pt etc
4) Buy some decent non green crap hdd's
5) Buy a nice little POE gigabit switch which supports jumbo frames and maybe tree span / vlan's / lacp
6) Buy some cheap little POE ap's
7) Use a DSL modem in PPPoE bridge mode to the internal integrated nic
8) IP phones
9) Download something like clearos / pfsense etc etc


The above builds a server which could run
Very hard firewall
Radius Portal
Content filter
IDS / IPS / HIDS
VPN
Storage server / nzb - torrent server / gateway server / security DVR server / DLNA server etc etc
Pabx

And some of you will read the above and go gfto, sure I understand and I do...but if you are going to run NBN are you going to use copper pairs for your phone? So providing for a voip phone system is ideal. You get a nas and you are getting allot of control over what comes in and what goes out of your network.

You could try to get an all in one device which will offer gbe wan / wireless / gbe lan saving some dollars but you don't get as much broad functionality. A draytek Vigor2850Vn will do it

I love overbuilding. I love that post.

I live in the Richmond NBN area, from the sounds of things it'll be around my way in 6-8 months. Should be neato.

Herbal, Red.

I'm looking to do some 'overbuilding' myself, are there any relatively straight forward tutorials for setting up windows domains?

(or is someone likely to reply, "Yea, they're called the 'Win 2008 R2 installation wizards'?)

What did you want to run it on mike, and are you going to run it as a VM or bare metal? And are there concerns about power usage?
