FAMILY MEMBERS DATA ALLOCATION

I need some help.  I have a B315 Router on an uncapped Lte broadband residential line.  I have two hoggs in the house, a daughter that is at varsity and a sixteen year old boy whos hormones are going haywire.  I want to give each a certain limited amount of bandwidth per month.  How do I do this?

@doubleujayh, a tricky one. These types of simple home routers dont really let you do that. You can usually do MAC address filtering to block people from accessing a router, or you can do Parental Control where you can set certain times per day that the internet is accessible, as well as block certain sites.

I am aware of the MAC address Parental Control options but do not want to limit them entirely.  The idea is to give them a piece of the pie but when it is up... it is up. No more nada

I can't believe that this is not possible in this day and age.  I am at wits end. Telkom keeps sending me threatening messages about throttling and suspension on something that that I have little control over bar disabling the device completely or taking away the kids gadgets!

@doubleujayh, be the parent! Smiley Mad ANywayz, there probably is ways of doing it. Googling the subject brings up very technical solutions involving customer router firmware ot installing a proxy server etc...

You could also try a Parental DNS service that blocks certain types of sites. I all, you are wanting BMW extras on a Polo Vivo.

I have done that. I have put a Netgear router as access point in front of the Huawei B315 with an OpenDns parental control dns to control access to specific sites. Thanks anyway for trying to assist.
