Setup Parental Control on a TP-Link ADSL router

In this example I am using a – TD-W8960N.
I am only going to give you a brief outline on how to set this up as various people need various settings – however it is extremely easy to utilise and doesn’t require a router restart to take effect.

  1. First navigate to the routers administration page – open your internet browser and navigate to: 192.168.1.1
  2. On the left hand side Menu select Advanced Setup
  3. Select Parental Control
  4. Here you have 2 options – you can place a Time Restriction which will allow you to specify by time and day (by MAC address filtering) that will Block or Allow internet connectivity during certain periods. The second is URL filtering allowing you to place a block on certain URLs.
