Hi all,

 

Thank you in advance for who helps me here and give their ideas and all readers.

 

 

Suggest me a process or software or options for enabling parental controls for only specific devices over my Wifi.

 

Things we have : 

 

2 Netgear Routers.

2 Switches.

25 Desktops.

Perhaps a 10-15 mobile phones of staff.

 

The network setup is like :

 

"ISP to Router I; Router I to Switch I ; Switch I to Router II and Switch II and 8 systems; Switch II to 15 systems."

 

I have tried parental controls by openDNS on my router. The things are getting blocked in general and that's fine.

 

 

Now the issue is ,

 

I want to have only certain devices access the internet without any parental controls ( or lesser level of restrictions like having access to social media sites) like devices of higher management ( and myself included :P), and all other systems have internet with no major access to social media viz facebook and whatsapp ( ie they should have highly secure parental controls.)

 

So what are your suggestions.

 

Or am I expecting too much out of my Router.

Not sure if any of your router's are compatible with PfSense, but you could use that.   I would say that some type of UTM (Unified Threat Management)appliance is what you are looking for.
