It didn't take long for my 15 year old to find a way around Firewalla. I'm not sure how he is doing it, but at least Firewalla alerts me when he does. So Firewall sees the same device name that is blocked but allows his phone online anyway. I can block it again, but if he's persistent he can be back online in a few minutes.
Also, and not 100% sure if it's related, but when he does this my router will hang up and requires a reboot to recover.
I guess I can try and block the sites he's trying to access, mostly Youtube, Google Videos, Instragram, and Online Games.
If anyone has some suggestions on how to figure out how he's getting past Firewalla please send them my way!
My Router is a Netgear 7000P running dd-wrt firmware, which was my first attempt at parental controls before buying Firewalla.
