Having a hard time with Firewalla and ATT (Arris BGW210):
1. First set up with simple mode. Got notifications, alarms, and the group settings did stop the Xbox from working but not sure about the iPad. But no porn filtering, e.g. I am not seeing the differences illustrated in this link: https://help.firewalla.com/hc/en-us/articles/360022653793-Safe-Search
Opendns was not working but if I understand it right, that's because of ATT.
2. Then I saw posts to use DHCP mode. So tried that. Still no porn filtering. And when I tried the "Internet Block" and/or "social hour," our iPad still was getting Youtube just fine.
3. My son showed me the private address switch in the wifi section of the iPad. For whatever reason, it generated a quarantine alarm but its internet was not stopped, even though I had not released it from quarantine. So it seems new device quarantine is not working.
So what are the steps to get full (or substantial) firewalla features to work with BGW210? I may not have it set up exactly right. But are there some limitations with ATT Fiber and BGW210 that will not be solved? The alarms are useful but I really want Quarantine New Device and Internet Block to work on iPad at least.
