block kids' gaming websites, certain hours, stock ASUS firmware

With COVID, my kids are addicted to roblox and diggerz games. I have an ASUS rt-66u running my main show... where and what do i do to limit hours/access to those domains?

The trick is not to block them, but to give your kids underpowered unbranded hardware. That way they are forced to mess with it to make their games work, which teaches them computer skills

In the Parental Control panel, you can block network access to specific devices entirely for certain hours of the day. This prevents ANY internet access, though, not just the specific website(s). You're not going to find the level of granularity of control that you're looking for on the router.

Huh? Taking the device out of their hands not an option?

If you have a spare machine or a Raspberry Pi, install Pi-Hole or AdGuard Home

No spare computer? Edit the host file on their computer
