Not all routers have the ability to set time limits. Check with the manufacturer's website for your router's model. IF your router has the capability, then their website should have the instructions for setting up the limitations.
Hiding the router in your bedroom makes no difference unless you've unplugged it, but if you do that they you can't use it either. If you use wireless settings on your smartphone then you won't be able to use that either.

What equipment do I need to have particular kid's tv shows to view on my son's tv for a certain amount of time, like 2-3 hours?

Depending on your router make and model, you can limit a particular MAC address, in this case the TV, in the router to only allow access during set times. Let me know what you have and I can provide more detailed instructions

How do I stop my 2002 dodge stratus from running via only pulling a fuse (if applicable) from inside of my car?

there's no way of keeping it from running from the inside that I know of. The only thing I can say is to remove the ignition relay and a fuel pump relay from underneath the hood that way you'll still be able to keep memory on all your electronics

How Can I put 2 passwords on a netgear74 router

Why?? It would be much easier to implement multiple profiles (with individual password locking) on the individual computers, and, using windows firewall, you can limit access to specific kid-safe web portals. Just remember to set an administrator password on the system and create limited ( non-administrator) accounts for the kids.

My baby won't fall asleep come night time, I don't know what to do....any help would be appreciated

It is a transient habit. You may do something in the daytime,such as take some activities instead of sleep. And if you are used to stay up late at night, maybe you can change the life style, or give baby a sleeping environment.

Hei loose wifi always at same time. at midnight

you have either set or it defaults to dormant or have a sleep schedule, which helps with late night hacking.

Login into the router, change the broadcast settings to ALWAYS ON, be sure there are no schedules, usually ALWAYS ON deletes schedules, save and reboot and should be good to go.

How can I turn off the wireless signal emanating from the d-link unit without deactivating the direct connection that I am using it for. I don't want my kids using their I-Pod touch to download stuff...

if there is no option to turn off the signal just put in an encryption password and don't give it to anyone. HERE is the link to set up the encryption on your router.

I have a level one router and it was working absolutely fine till yesterday night. suddenly my Laptop displays cannot find any wireless signals i tried every possible way,tried checkin on neighbours...

I don't know what a level 1 router is, but try hooking directly to your modem with the lan line that goes to your router, if you get a connection there, reconnect your router to your modem and then connect a line to one of the outputs from your router. If you get nothing out of it, then your router is probably fried

My lap top detects other sky routers

Check your router settings. You should surch for a setting called "Undetectable" or "Hide SSID". Or, if you know the name (SSID) of your home wireless connection, you can enter it. If none of this helps, post the router's manufacturer and model and your laptop manufacturer and model. And btw, what OS you're using?

Restrict the router to specific times

First off thanks for choosing for help.

It does not look like this router offers parental control features. However, you can install a "Net Nanny" application that will allow you to restrict the time your kids are online.

The other option and much cheaper is to label which cable is your sons going into the router and unplug it at the given time.

If you have an older computer laying around that you can spare, you can also use IPCOP or SMOOTHWALL firewalls to limit time on the internet. These devices are free and offer a ton of features.
However they require a dedicated computer and will remove any data on the hard drive of that machine.

Your easiest bet would be "Net Nanny" software. Vista has parental control settings in it, but its for the whole computer (meaning it will turn off the computer) and not just the internet.

Hope this helps you in some way.
