Hello router experts,
My 10 years old LevelOne router is about to pass away and I am looking for a replacement. The router has a capability to allow Internet flow from specific devices only at specific times within a week, i.e. 16:00-20:00 during workdays and 12:00-20:00 during weekends. Now I am looking for the replacement and so far I could not identify a single router that can perform this simple task. I am still searching and I need confirmation that router can do that before I buy it. I was reading RouterOS documentation extensively, yet it is not clear enough and I cannot test the router without buying it, so I hope you can give me this answer.
The procedure with LevelOne router was the following:
1. setting static IPs to all domestic devices (leaving dynamic IPs to guest devices) - this is perhaps ip arp command, but what is the meaning of interface?
2. creating two groups of IP addresses - this is perhaps address-list line of command, I couldn't find a single example of creating list that includes more than one static entry!
3. define schedule 16:00-20:00 during workdays and 12:00-20:00 during weekends, no example of this kind of schedule in documentation.
4. attaching groups of IP addresses to schedules.
Is something similar possible to do in RouterOS? I suppose GUI does not have this capabilities, but command line commands would be still good.
Thanks for the answer.
