    Quick Google suggests that unplugging the router is the only option, can’t get more final than that.

    Maybe get another router, my asus one can limit the bandwidth of any connected device and turn the connection off / on when i choose from the app on my mobile.

    What type of device is he accessing the internet on that you want to block? There's a few ways you can do this from the device end (dependent upon the device type) rather than the router.
  10. Sort the little shit out man ffs

    Take anything off him he can access the Internet with

    as easy as that sounds, when you have a child with behavioural difficulties, you won't have witnessed the aftermath of said action...... :(

    Xbox just go into restrictions on the settings, create a password (that he doesn't know) and then set time of day restrictions. See here for more..

    For the phone it depends whether it's Apple or Android..

    What type of router is it, it can be easily done on mine.

    Also, won't he just turn off wifi on his phone and use 4G?

    He'll also know if he kicks off big time you'll back down, at some point you're gonna have to tackle the problem to get some boundaries put in place or it'll be a rod for your own back forever more Shirley.

    Aye how did I shut your Internet down?, share that gem with him, you lying sack of shit:rolleyes:

    Not worth paying a professional to help you and the lad draw up boundaries, as carrying on like this is just going to send you crackers if you're stuck on ways to either control him or even come to an agreement between yourselves over the time he's allowed online

    he's got social workers, paediatricians, dieticians, camhs, special department of school, and so on mate :(
    I took control of him a year or so ago after years of mistreatment from his mother, and I am now a having to pick up the pieces, I just hope it isn't too late......

    I'm sure there's a couple of shrinks on here that may give you some more ideas behavioural side, start a thread on it?
    I think @Skandhaless works in this area? He's a commie fucker but as long as you don't mention the revolution he seems a decent helpful chap
