How do you limit internet access by device using the SAC2V2S router?

I've seen the instructions stating to open the app and open "services" and you should then see choose device and the connected / pause / not connected status. All I see is what's on the screenshot. No connected devices. Is this a service I need to pay for? Does the router I have (SAC2V2S) not support this feature. I'm trying / wanting to pause wifi for my daughter when its past her bed time. Please help. Thank you all.

    Hi and welcome @jcojco2000 !


    It sounds like what you are looking for is Parental Controls. To set up parental controls, you can add the MAC address of the device or devices that you want to restrict and you can limit internet access times by device. This is optimal because you customize it by day and any other devices will still have internet access. Please note that this will require logging into the web GUI and is not available through the app interface.

    I included a link to Spectrum Support - manuals

    which includes a link to the Spectrum Wave 2 / WiFi 6 Router User Manual

    Parental controls instructions are found on page 25, here is a snapshot of the instructions:


    Hope you find this helpful!
