Hi.
I have an AC88U running Merlin 384.16.
I don't use schedules, but I do block devices (cameras) from internet access. I went ahead and blocked my phone as a test and it seemed to work. I then tried the schedule and it allowed internet access until I set it to deny for that current time frame and then I tried to access the web and my browser took me to a router landing page that internet was blocked, so it does seem to work on mine.

Maybe test another device like your phone to try and duplicate the issue, otherwise maybe it's an issue on that firmware or some other setting overriding that?

Well, just found a glitch with that. Glad I double checked the Network list. After turning scheduling off from that test, I checked my Network Map list and all of the devices that I had blocked from the internet showed unblocked. Went back into one of them and re-enabled "Block Internet access" and then everything I had previously blocked showed the red mark on internet access in your picture.
Now I may need to check some to make sure that setting is holding.

On my AC86U RC2-6 AiMesh 2.0 beta firmware webUI...

Network Map\Clients/Client Status\client\Block Internet Access blocks Internet access all of the time. Seems to work.

Network Map\Clients/Client Status\client\Time Scheduling and AiProtection\Parental Controls\Time Scheduling both schedule local network access. And, a footnote points out that local network access includes Internet access... all clients added will have their Internet access restricted by default. Seems to work.

Setting one disables the other. So, you can block Internet access ALL of the time, or you can block ALL access some of the time, but you can not do both at the same time. :)

See AiProtection\Parental Controls\Web & Apps Filters to block access to Internet websites and apps.

I don't use the router app.
