Hey, Charles Henson here. Today, I'm going to show you how to use your router to limit people's Internet usage. So, the reason we might want to do this, is in case, people are browsing the Internet or not doing their work. Maybe they're hitting social media sites or sites that you don't want them to be hitting while they're at work. So, essentially what you'll do is, log into your router. And once you log into your router, we'll go into the manual setup. Under the Parental Controls, we have a couple options here. We can turn on parental control to deny computer's access to only these sites or we can allow computers to only access these sites. So, if you have users that you want to have access only to two or three special sites. And that's the only place you want them to use the Internet, then you can do that using this second feature here. So, what we're worried about right now is we're going to block people and you can build schedules. You're able to click on the schedule and choose when hours or what not. And so, I went ahead and created, I've gone ahead and created and created two. That is the business hours, eight to five and then, we have a lunch time. So, if we want to allow people to use computers during a certain time, then we can turn this control on. If we want to block certain types of sites like YouTube.com. Then we can type those in and then, you'll select the time of day that you want to stop it or whichever time that we set it up. And then, go ahead and add the second account, Vimeo.com which is another video website. And we want to choose business hours as well. So, once we save that, now users will not be able to access these websites during business hours. Now that we've restricted Internet usage for our users, we're able to control where users can and cannot go on the Internet.
