Default Internet restrictions at home

My cousins have their internet usage restricted at home. When I was living with them I did too, and I had no idea how annoying it was. Basically my uncle setup the router to disable wifi during certain times and to certain devices. None of us, except my oldest cousin, have data plans on our phones. Just wondering does anyone else's family restrict internet in this way?

No. My parents wouldn't have the technical knowledge to be able to do that

Even if they did, I have quite a big data plan on my phone so I'm all good.

Nope, same as Endeavour... my parents lack the knowledge to put restrictions. They wouldn't gain anything from it also, since they use the internet a lot.

Using the internet isn't all bad. We need it for school stuff so my parents would never shut it off.

When my dad was living with us, he had the modem and router on time restrictions so that it would cut off at a certain hour and wouldnt come back on until the next day.

Never had that problem when I was younger. I can understand why a parent would try to restrict, esp if they thought it was a serious problem. if it is just a control type of thing then they need to lighten up

Nope, like @Mars said I pay for my own phone. So they canít do anything about that. At home itís like a utility, like heat water electricity out TV. It sounds unlimited so no reason to limit it. Especially if I have homework or something to do thatís important.

At one time I was limited so I wouldnít be on line all night, when I was on my dads calling plan, heíd shut me down at 11 pm form the night. I get that.

The internetís not bad just cause itís the internet. He may be limiting it maybe cause he only has so much data he can use in a month, or knows some of you guys would be on it all night and not sleep or do homework.

Most home WiFi is unlimited, so Iíll bed he just wants you guys to get some sleep instead of doing whatever all night online

I don't have any time restrictions on my internet access. Probably because my parents realize that I need the internet for school and such. There isn't any financial reason to cut it off, because like what has been said before, most home internet service is unlimited data.

Just change the settings so you can access the internet again. If they find the setting changed, (I doubt they would) just tell them the router might have updated it's software...

Haha I wouldn't want to risk that with my uncle! If he found out that would put me in serious trouble. I'm at my moms now so it doesn't matter anyways. She'd never be able to figure out how to restrict it.

Yes, the wifi was always turned off at my house during the night, and that was only for a little while, maybe a year that we had wifi. I've always had really low data on my phone, not enough for anything really substantial. My mother had a Mac set up to a hardline for what must have been the majority of my life, so the only times I could access the internet was during the day, and since the computer was in a public room, there was no, "inappropriate," activity possible (Hintpornhint). Now the wifi is on all the time, just by virtue of my mom mostly forgetting about it lol.

My uncle said he restricts it because he wants to supervise us during our time online, though my oldest cousin doesn't get supervised. He also doesn't want us online after bedtime, and that rule applies to all the kids.
