Learn how to set up Streamyx Parental Control. In this post, I’ll show you the step-by-step on how to set up Parental Control settings using Time Restriction and URL Filter.

Parental Control is a feature where you (as a parent) can restrict or put a limitation on a certain device to access the internet and/or block a website. You’ll have an option to control them by day, and time.

Note: I’m using TM Streamyx wireless G ADSL 2+ modem model Innacomm W3400V6 for this tutorial.

Prerequisite

Connect your computer to the modem by wired/wireless and make sure you have the login information. If you haven’t change them, the following are the default:

  • Username: tmadmin
  • Password: Adm@XXXX (XXXX is the last 4 digit of your modem MAC address)

If you plan to use the Time Restriction feature, you need to get the MAC address of the device you wanted to control.

Set up Streamyx Parental Control

Login to your Streamyx modem as usual. If this is your first time, the detail steps are as follows:

  1. Open any internet browser.
  2. Go to http://192.168.1.1.
  3. On the login page, enter your login detail and click Login.
  4. Select Advanced Setup.
  5. Select Parental Control.

Continue with the following steps for Time Restriction and/or URL Filter.

Use Time Restriction

  1. Select Time Restriction.
  2. Click Add button.
  3. Configure as your preferred, some of them are pretty straightforward:
    • Username: Set any username for your reference.
    • Browser’s MAC address: Which device’s MAC address you want to control.
    • Days of the week: Check the box for which day you want to restrict the device.
    • Start Blocking Time: Set the time when the restriction will start.
    • End Blocking Time: Set the time when the restriction will stop.
  4. Click Apply/Save button to save the changes.

Use URL Filter

  1. Select URL Filter.
  2. Click Add button.
  3. Configure as your preferred, some of them are pretty straightforward:
    • URL Address: Put in the URL of the website to be filtered.
    • Port Number: You can leave this blank.
    • Days of the week: Check the box for which day you want to restrict the device.
    • Start Blocking Time: Set the time when the URL filtering will start.
    • End Blocking Time: Set the time when the URL filtering will stop.
  4. Click Apply/Save button to save the changes.

Done. Try reboot the modem if needed.

Conclusion

By following the above method, you’ll likely able to control your kid’s device. However, I’ve heard from some of you that this feature is not working very well. I’m not sure what was the real issue since mine is working well.
