Your Router Status page gives you direct access to the settings on your Sky Broadband Hub. Once logged in you'll be able to change your wireless password, view router stats, find the best wireless channel for your home network and so much more!
I'm going to share with you the steps you'll need to set a timer on your home broadband network.
How to set a timer to your broadband network
First, you need to connect to your Router status page;
Make sure you're connected to you home broadband network
Open your Internet Browser
In the address bar type 192.168.0.1 and click enter.
When prompted enter the username: admin and password: sky (lowercase)
Whilst in the router status page, click the Advanced tab followed by LAN IP Setup.
Under Address reservation click Add.
Click the radio button next to one of the devices you want to block.
You'll see the IP address, MAC address and device name appear below.
Change the IP address to 192.168.0.50.
Click Add, you'll be told a restart is needed, click Cancel.
Add devices one at a time by clicking the radio button next to the device, changing the IP address, then clicking add.
The IPs must be used in order, so your second IP should be 192.168.0.51. Your third should end 52 and so on. (Keep a note of the IPs you've used)
Once you've added your last device you can restart your router. Click OK.
(If logged out, log back into the router status page)
Click the Security tab then Firewall rules
Under Outbound services click Add, and then next to:
Service- dropdown select Any (ALL).
Action- dropdown select BLOCK by schedule.
LAN Users- dropdown select Address range.
Start- type 192.168.0.50
Finish- type the IP address you gave to the last device you added.
Check out the video below which will show you how to connect to your router status page.
TIP: If you want to return your Sky Hub to factory settings, press and hold the reset button on the back of the Sky Hub until the power light flashes on and off four times then remains on. This will take approximately 10 seconds. The Sky Hub should reboot and connect to the internet.
