Default Rogers Hi-Speed Internet (SMC8014WG-RRR) - NETWORK PROTECTION?


I'm not super smart when it comes to network related things in the computer.
That said I have a small question. I have this Rogers Modem/Router setup at home.
I have;
1x Desktop - LAN
2x Laptops - (1 Wireless and 1 LAN)
1x PS3 - Wireless

I want to know if I can completly block the internet connection on ALL devices for some period of hours every day without having to disconnect my modem, but by just changing the router settings somewhere?
Have a scheduled time when there will be access to the internet and not
I know I can just change the password which will solve the wireless connection, but the LAN connections will work regardless without a password.

Another question I have is;

Can I setup this router so that it stops my internet when I reach my monthly download limit?

Can you log into your router? Usually to log in your just put the ip address of it in your internet browser search bar.
From there check the parental control settings there. If your router does support parental controls you should be able to set times and block websites.
I don't think there's a download restriction though. Sorry
The best your probably going to get is the time restriction.

Kids can be a bare. =P

Should look something like this if you have it. (This is my router which may be set up completely different then yours)
