You can either do it via the ISP as Michael says or using the Synology router - I have a Synology router here.


What I do is enable the Parental Controls (time of day, site type restrictions) for specific devices - the tables my daughter uses. I then use OpenDNS as the network-wide DNS, so if she is using one of the adults' laptops there's still some level of protection. We also have Norton Family installed in all devices around the house. She knows to login on her account when using the laptops so this covers time limits and other things.

So I got the Synology router today - loving it!  


I'm on a ADSL connection, we get around 7mbps download.  I want to use the function on the router to limit the download and upload speeds to a certain device.  What speed (download and upload in kbps) would you recommend on my current connection to a device which I want to allow general browsing (emails, websites like NZHerald etc fine) but make watching youtube unusable and terribly slow?




Thanks for your help!
