[admin@MikroTik] > /ip kid-control add name=kid1 sun=20:00:00-22:00:00 mon=16:00:00-21:00:00 [admin@MikroTik] > /ip kid-control device add name=Limit1 user=kid1 mac-address=FF:FF:FF:ED:83:63
Internet access limitation is implemented by adding dynamic firewall filter rules or simple queue rules. Here are example firewall filter rules:
[admin@MikroTik] > /ip firewall filter print 1 D ;;; Limit1, kid-control chain=forward action=reject src-address=192.168.88.254 2 D ;;; Limit1, kid-control chain=forward action=reject dst-address=192.168.88.254
