The author is a resilient graduate in electrical engineering, and an aspiring professional in the said area.

Parental control must be an essential feature of any WiFi router but as you have already figured out that Huawei devices do not offer any such feature directly.

You may however exercise some form of parental control on your Huawei WiFi router or wingle by:

  • Restricting each individually connected device from accessing a specific site or
  • You can completely block a device from connecting to the WiFi network of Huawei router.

These procedures are tested to work on Huawei e7183 usb WiFi wingle and a similar approach will also work for other Huawei WiFi routers and wingles.

How to block a device from connecting to your Huawei WiFi Router?

You may completely block a specific device from connecting to the WiFi network of your Huawei wingle even if he knows the password.

  2. Click the statistics tab and log in.
  3. Scroll down.
  4. Here you will see all the devices connected to your WiFi router, with the option to block any one of them on the right hand side. You may unblock the device later.
