Problems disabling wireless using Access Restrictions

    I just migrated my WRT54G to Tomato v1.27 (from Thibor) and want to turn off wireless access after 10PM every night. So I set up a rule (the only rule) in Access Restrictions as follows:

    Enabled : (checked)
    Description : "NoWireless"
    Schedule : Everyday (checked)
    Time : 10:00 PM - 8:00 AM
    Type : Disable Wireless (selected)

    Unfortunately it doesn't seem to work, access stays on all the time. I tried disabling the rule and re-enabling. Power cycling the router, nothing seems to get it to work. Am I doing it right? Any suggestions on how to make it work correctly? (For what it's worth, the wireless DOES turn off if I press the SES button manually.)

    I have searched and not found a post on anyone having a problem with this, if I missed it, then my apologies.

    Thank you.

    Looks like you are doing it correct to me.
    Under STATUS/OVERVIEW, is the time correct?

    Agh. No time available! That was the problem. This is the second router in a chain and there is a DNS issue so it couldn't resolve the NTP server addresses. Rather than fix the DNS issue, I just put the IP addrs of the NTP servers in and it got the correct time.

    Now I'll wait to make sure the wireless turns off at the right time.

    Thank you very much!

    UPDATE: The time issue fixed the problem. I also went back and solved the DNS failure issue. I had left the "Static DNS" as zeros under Basic->Network. I had assumed the router would use the default gateway IP for DNS. No. When I put the same IP as for the default gateway, the DNS started to work again.

    Thank you for your pointers, Low-WRT. Appreciate it!
