Information

 
Question
How do I block Internet access in my SVG2482AC Gateway?
Answer
The SVG2482AC Parental Controls feature provides the ability to block Internet access to client devices in the home network.  Internet access is blocked by setting up one of the two Access types:
  • Allow All - Allow all client devices access to the Internet and add client devices to block access.
  • Block All - Block all client devices access to the Internet and add client devices to allow access.
The client devices can also be managed for time of day to be blocked.  By default, Parental Controls is disabled, which allows all Internet access to all the client devices.  This document contains the following sections:
Allow All Access Type Setup
When the Allow All access type is selected, all client devices have access to the Internet.  Client devices in the home network can be added to block Internet access.  This is the recommended setup, as client devices will only need to be added to block Internet access when needed.  
  1. Launch a web browser, such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Safari.  Enter http://10.0.0.1 into the address box, and press the Enter key.  The Login page will appear.
     
  2. On the Login page, enter admin in the Username field.
     
  3. Enter password in the Password field then click the Login button.  The Gateway > At a Glance page will appear.

    NOTE: A prompt to change the password appears when the SVG2482AC is using the default password.  To change the password click the OK button or click the Cancel button to bypass it.​
