Sharing Internet access to neighbors is not a bad idea. But when all of them started to stream Youtube videos–I believe there will be no problem in some other countries but here in the Philippines–disaster happens.
You’d sometimes turn the router off and on while telling them “ang bagal kasi (it’s really slow)” having that smile on your face. I know that your purpose is to let their conscience know to stop streaming videos. But they won’t bother and tell you instead “Ahh.. sege bilisan mo… (Ahh.. okay do it fast…)“.
You might not want to block them directly especially if that neighbor is constantly giving you food. LOL!
So if your concern is to only block them from streaming videos in Youtube at a certain period of time then follow the steps below.
1. Open you browser and type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar. You will be redirected to the login page where you need to provide the router’s username and password.
The default user credentials if you’ve not changed it are “admin” or “adminpldt” and “1234567890” as password.
2. After successfully logged in, Click the “Security” Tab and Enable Firewall.
Note: If you are not seeing the “Security” Tabs, see How to Access PLDT Home Fibr Router Page with Full Privileges and do the steps provided to be able to see the advance tabs.
3. Click URL Filtering and select the options “Enable” and “Black List” then click the “Add” button to start adding filters.
Type in the “www.youtube.com” in the URL Address field. The start and end time allows you to set the duration when users will be blocked from accessing the said URL. In my case, I set it to 10 and 18 which means 10AM to 6PM.
Finally, select “Enable” in the Enable selection and hit the “Apply” button to save changes.
4. Restart your device so the changes will be applied to the users when they are connected back.

Hi, there are no other features sa Security except Firewall and Parental Control.
Hndi ko po ma open ung ip adress… 192.168.1.1 pnu po un?
Hi. Active pa po ba to? Want ko po sana itanong kung paano na po mag block ng mac address. Pldt home fibr Rp2631 po software version ng modem. Thank you so much.
hi. ask ko lang. paano mapalabas ang maraming options sa security tab? my device model is AN5506-04-F, and device description is GPON; hardware version is WKF2.134.285F4G. bakit kaya firewall at parental control lang ang lumalabas sa security tab? i was asked by my boss secretly to lessen the kbps of a certain desktop (of a fellow employee). thanks.
i have succeded to block youtube on computers but through the phone people can access youtube, please assist on this
Why does mine have no option to configure the firewall. After enabling it, nothing further happens?
You must login as an admin or adminpldt to have the URL Filtering options enabled.
Hi! I am logged in. After pressing the APPLY button, nothing happens. No URL Filtering window shows up. I am able to change all other things in the other parts of this manager, such as change password, change router name, turn on/off 5G signal, and everything else. It’s just this one in the Firewall section that brings me nowhere else. It’s weird. I tried everything I could.
Yung sa internet access time period po ba yung time lang na pwede nyang i-surf yung mga prohibited websites?
Two ways po depende kung Whitelist or Blacklist option ang naka enable sa’yo. Kapag naka whitelist, tama po kayo na pwede lang masurf ng user yung sites within the time or period that you set po.
