Hi everyone. This is my first post here.

I have a Thomson TG585 from Spark and I want to enable MAC filtering but can't seem to find a function to do that. Has anyone done this? If so, how? I am wanting to restrict my kids from having access to the internet at night (when they should be asleep) while us parents still do.

If I do need to change the modem, would I get it from Spark or can I buy one from anywhere? What would you recommend I get that is not too expensive (there are ones selling over $300)!!

Thanks in advance.

If your 585 is anything like my 582 (which it may not be), then take a look at this page:

Looks like Technicolor do MAC filtering setup in a funny way.

My views are my own, and may not necessarily represent those of my employer.

I can't find step 6 in my modem configuration screen.
