xbox one connection

Ok, so I'm trying to figure something out with my Pace att router, and my kids xbox one. I am trying to disable his wifi connectivity, via the router. I am able to put in the mac address and successfully disable with the mac filter, but he is still able to go online live, and then speaking with whoever with the headset.
It's not important as why i'm trying to do this. I just need to know how to do this. I don't understand. Something isn't correct. The unit is not hard wired to the router. It is just wifi and 2.4 htz

Hi drmax

There is this Parental Control setting in the router.

Maybe you could download the router manual.
And with computer wired to router to manage.

I do not use this feature so someone may able to assist you.

I dont have an xbox.
But xbox needs an internet connection to work.
There are either two options.
You have not filtered the correct MAC.
Or, xbox is using an alternate path to the internet.
You know your kid better than I, so you should now hos technical prowess.
To bypass, one could go wired which requires ethernet cable dragged to a port to router and uses a different MAC. You should be able to find this in router logs.
One might be able to use phone, but that would be a fairly technical hack.
Again, you can find this in router logs.
You may have internet sharing turned on, on a local pc, an are thus using that PCs Internet connection. Again, router logs. Disable Internet sharing and remove admin access to his pc, which I presume you paid for and should be true admin. https://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-...g/win-computer
Good luck

  • Lock the router with a strong password. (30+ Random Characters)
  • Do not allow the child access to the password.
  • change the SSID of the router wireless
  • Set a strong Pass Phrase on the wireless SSID
  • set the router to not broadcast it's SSID
If the child gets through that a call to MIT about early entry options may be in order

When I go into the router I find the list of what is connected and in use. It shows Xbox one and its Mac address. I have added that and Mac filter enabled. I'll have to do some research

If you check my list of options, are you certain that your child does not have access to the router?

Any access to the router will allow any changes you make pointless as your child could simply go into the router and change them back

Put password on router like barman suggested, so your kid cant unwind your mac filter.
Look at the link at internet connection sharing.
With ICS, xbox can use another PCs internet connection to access internet.

Whoops. Your router should have a section on logging. From there you should be able to tell which IP is connecting to xbox live. You may need to turn it on. You can test it yourself by going into xbox, noting time, connecting, then checking router logs for that time.

Yes. I have changed the password, and did
Take the decal off the side of router. No way he could figure it out. He's not that savy
