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.
