    Help Blocking fornite with TP Link VR900

    I’m with sly q and have replaced the router with a VR900, all is working well.

    however one of the reasons was to better assist me in banning fornite so my kids can not play it:

    I once managed to block it via the sly q router but somehow after a good few months it’s now back and working again!

    could anyone help me out please

    many thanks

    Navigate through the router and there should be a firewall. I'm not familiar with this particular router, but should have something to block access to sites/IPs for the entire network.

    Block epicgames.com and easy.ac
    The game should freeze at the login page.

    better still create another wireless network for the kids, ban time just turn there wifi off.
    If wired as above block ip's sites

    Another idea - you could edit the hosts file on each PC. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Snag is to do this on phones you need to root/jailbreak them, and is more work as you will have to do each PC 1 by 1. But on the flip side, for example you can still get access on your pc if you don't edit the hosts file and you can let them play on your PC as a special treat.
