    My Teenager has found a way to bypass the parent controls. All that one needs to do is change the Network address setting in the advanced tab of the NIC. Change the setting from Not Present to Value with random numbers as seen in this youtube video. I tested it. It works. After doing this the kid has no restrictions. Please advise if there is a way to stop this.. here is the video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2sFD9TGYaRA

    When they do that, a named device becomes an anonymous device, and falls under the control of the Default profile. You need to enable control on the Default profile.

    But when you look at the logs, you’d see an unrecognized device. To discourage them from changing the MAC addresses of their devices, you can put the most strict control on the Default profile. And put named devices under more reasonable control.
