Temporarily disable access restrictions

    Is there any way to disable access restrictions for say an hour or two hours?

    I think such feature would be very useful. I want to schedule my Wifi to turn off during the night, but rarely I might need it during the restricted hours.

    Is there any workaround right now other than disabling the restriction? I may forget to re-enable it if I do this.

    My router is an Asus and it has a little button on the back. If I can make that button disable access restrictions for 2 hours it would be amazing.
    Is it possible to make a script that runs when I push the button that disables all access restrictions for the next 2 hours?

    The router is Asus RT-N12.

    Any help is very much appreciated!

    You can set time range when restrictions are active, so let them ON only when you want

    Try binding the following custom script to the WPS button.

    iptables -I restrict -j RETURN
    sleep $((60*120))
    iptables -D restrict -j RETURN
    ) &
