device time settings and daylight saving

I use the settings on our modem to restrict internet usage for the minor members of the family.

Since daylight saving came on, all the settings are out.

The modem is showing the correct time, the devices are showing the correct time, but where it is set for internet to connect to a device at 7am, it now doesn't connect until 8am.

Obviously I can work around this, but it would be better if I could get everything working correctly.

Any ideas on what I have missed?

At the risk of asking the obvious question, have you googled the question including your modem brand? I am married to an IT guy - he Googles everything too!

I imagine you will need to log in to the modem using a pc and change the settings?

I'm no help, it took me 20 minutes this morning to change the clock in my car.  Even then it was an accident, I bumped a button and it worked...

Definitely google it. It might need a firmware update?
