Keep in mind I am NOT very tech savvy.
I have a frankensteined computer running Windows 10
I have Cable internet connection through Cox Communications. Business account / 100mb. connected via ethernet through a Docsis 3.0 modem/wireless gateway.
I am a mgr at a treatment center for recovering alcoholics and drug addicts. I am in charge of the sober living facility. We recently installed this connection through Cox after a long and terrible relationship with Centurylink. Our idea was to allow our clients (anywhere from 2-40 at any given time) access to wifi on a limited basis. We dont want them to isolate with games and facebook all day/every day.
What I would like to do is install some sort of software that will allow me to regulate the settings of access to wifi. Specifically, I need the following:
1. Set a bandwidth limit.
2. Set a schedule where access will shut down at a certain time.
3. (not necessary but would be nice) Some way to label each connection other than by ip or mac address.
4. Need to be able to adjust each setting on a device by device basis.
I have found software that will accomplish 1 or 2 of these things but nothing that will allow me to do all.
I have to think that there is something, somewhere out there that can be used for this, and hopefully, whatever it is, I will be able to use it with my limited knowledge.
Again, all I have is a PC with 1 NIC and no server. I do have a Linksys EA9200 router that could be used also, should that be necessary.
I ran the "mini tool box" program and will attach the results.
Any help is appreciated.... Lord knows I need it.
