Is there a way to manage devices at a distance? For example, block access to device A when I am on the road?

Is there a way to program different access times for a device? Currently I am only seeing Bedtime schedule and I can only program 1 schedule.

Many thanks and happy New Year!

    Hello there kapdan01!

    To manage your devices you will need to be connected to the same network and open the Fizz Wi-Fi app. Go to My Devices and there you will be able to block or pause the access of each device there.
    Here is our FAQ about this: https://fizz.ca/en/faq/how-can-i-manage-devices-allowed-my-wi-fi-network

    However, given that you want to manage your devices from a distance, I would recommend to try the suggestions Jessy_ref_i88b6  and _CJ_  proposed since you will need to be connected to the same network in order to configure the devices on it.

    If you go with what CJ has suggested you will need to log into the page, which is the modem interface as we call it, that allows you to make said adjustments. 
    Here's how to access it:  

    1. Open a web browser.
    2. Enter in the address bar of the web browser.
    3. Log in using the username “cusadmin” and your administration password

    There is more information in the link I provided, at the third point/paragraph that tells you how you can manage your devices.

    Hope this helps and have a wonderful new year!

    Hi @kapdan01

    I think that is not possible using the Fizz's modem.

    I would like to suggest buying a router to connect with the Fizz's modem, this will give you more options, like block specific device, limit the time spent on internet and much more https://fizz.ca/en/faq/how-can-i-use-my-own-wi-fi-router-fizz

    Sorry I know that you are not what you asking :(

    You can sort of do it in a roundabout way by remotely connecting to a computer on the network and then going into the router's configuration through there in order to do what you'd like. It's more of a workaround, but I do it all the time.

    Anydesk is what I recommend to remotely access your computer - easy to use and works great, just make sure to secure it with a strong password.
