My Internet is limited, I am only allowed to download 5 GB per month, and watching videos on Youtube is eating my bandwidth, I managed to slow down the connection on specific computers by download and installng XP Traffic Shaper, but what about iPhones and Samsung Galaxy? or simply, mobile phone, I wanna know if there's a way to slow down my WiFi, or at least, block youtube's address, I have a THOMSON TG585 v7.

Page 43 of the user manual indicates that you can use address based filtering. If you want to block youtube this is likely the easiest way to do it. Keep in mind youtube is not the only major streaming video provider. You may want to consider Vimeo as well.

Deny access to a specific web site
Proceed as follows:
1 Browse to the Thomson Gateway GUI.
2 On the Toolbox menu, click Parental Control.
3 Make sure the Use Address-Based Filter check box is selected.
4 Type the URL of the Web site you want to block (for example “”) in the Web Site box.
5 In the Action list, click Block.
6 Click Add.
