You could save yourself the time of changing it and tell them no computer until they do their chores and then enforce it!
Is this not enforcing it?
Just preempting the sneakiness. Well-played.
And then they learn to reset the router
then you hide the router or put it outside. NO KID WANTS TO GO OUTSIDE ANYMORE.
Lol that doesn’t work on modern routers.
I would say this IS enforcing it!
if the parents have shit to do and these are teenagers or even if not, it probably worked…
id my parents did that when I was in high school id just say, “that blows i had homework… oh well”
Aw, where’s the fun in that?
Not gonna stop em, smartphones? lol
LOL That assumes the parents know how to change the Wi-fi password. Usually it’s the kids that do it.
Yup. In my high school days, my parents had me set up the security to keep myself and my sister locked out of the PC. As if I didn’t leave a backdoor.
naysayers… come on, it’s brilliant. well played.
aye it is
very well played. i already do this to my 3 teen boys. and no way do they get smartphones until they have a job that will pay for them!
You still need the wifi password regardless of what device you’re using.. (PC Smart Phone, DS, ect.)
BenO’s not the brightest M&M in the bag….
Haha, I was the one who set up the password! But then again, I actually did my chores since getting it over with is much faster than procrastinating.
Or, they just get a long network cable and plug directly into the router.
See, if the kids spent as much time doing their chores as some of you people spent thinking up ways to beat the parents “system” they’d be done by now… ;P it’s easier to do what you’re told than to sneak your way out of chores.
Many routers also have time restriction settings. You can set the hours the wi-fi network is up. True, parents wouldn’t be able to access it either but we all have work we could do also, including helping with homework etc.
They can also filter by MAC address. If their hardware matches then no Internet.
More fun: rotate the 1st words of the phrases.
Walk you beds
Make the downstairs
Vacuum the dog.
