E3000 parental controlled laptops require router reboot

I have an E3000 router connecting 4 laptops wirelessly. They are all the same model and OS machines, Dell Latitude E6510 with Windows 7 Pro.

I have 2 of the computers under parental control to disable the internet each night.

In the morning after the time to re-enable internet to the two controlled computers, they still won't connect

until I reboot the router.

I tried rebooting the machines instead.

I have to re-boot the router every day since we started last week to re-enable their internet access.

 

I called support who checked out my router settings through a remote connection and they said the settings are correct.

Call if it happens again.

 

Any help is appreciated,

Dan

This is strange. I think the parental control is not working properly on your router.

You can try to upgrade/re-flash the firmware on your router and see if that works.

I have found that if either of the restricted computers are left on through/during the time reset boundry, that we have this problem. Once I made sure the computers were shut down (not just in sleep or hibernate) then the restoration to access works.

 

Maybe this is normal?
