My parents have blocked my wifi usage from 10-6 on the modem and this is affecting my iPhone and iPad's wifi. Does anyone know how to bypass the parental time limitations for my devices? Thanks in advance

The settings are on the router so you can't change that unless you change the router settings.

However it's much easier just to put up with it. When you move out and have your own house, you can go on the Internet for as long as you want -- you can also do all your own laundry and cooking! :D

They choose to switch off the internet between these times. There's nothing you can do, since it's their house, their rules. Get a personal mifi or create a personal hotspot from your iPhone.

Have you tried talking to your parents about it? Maybe they didn't know you would be inconvenienced.

why not just use the internet sharing function in your iPhone? With that,you create,and of course pay for,your own connection.

When my kids were younger I also blocked the wifi during similar hours on school nights. This was to prevent them from staying up too late on their computers.

Think twice about trying to bypass their limitations. If your parents find out, you may not have an iPhone or iPad to worry about for awhile.

Unless you're paying for your internet service and your devices,myou really have no right to defy your parents' wishes. Work it out with them or live with it.

And pay utilities, and insurance, and for groceries, etc. ;)
