How to set up Access control in a Home Hub 3000 / Bell MTS Hub 3000 modem
What is Access control?

The Access control feature of your Home Hub lets you set the time and day a particular device can access the Internet. Learn more about How to create access controls on my Home Hub 3000 / Bell MTS Hub 3000 modem. As an example, you can limit the time your children spend online by specifying the day and time when their device (laptop, tablet, etc.) cannot access the Internet.

Note:

Access control only blocks ports 80 (http) and 443 (https) so it will not prevent devices from accessing shared files (documents, pictures, videos) on the local network.

By creating a schedule, you can specify time periods when particular devices cannot access the Internet.

  1. Open your web browser and visit http://home/ or http://192.168.100.254.
  2. From the home screen, click on Access control.
  3. Click the Create a new schedule button.
  4. Give the schedule a name.
  5. From the list of available devices, select the ones that you want to apply this schedule to.

    A device must have connected to your network at least once for it to show up in the list.

  6. Click the Apply button.
