    Ok, here's a pet peeve I have. With an old Netgear I had, I could setup scheduling for a particular ip address. Thought I could do the same with this WRT54G... but no go. I defined the particular machine I wanted to be effected, and I want to deny access from 11pm to 5am. (HInt: I called the rule "School Nights"). I keep getting "The end time must be bigger than the start time!" ... Only thing I can possibly do is make it work from 11pm to 11:55 pm then maybe 1am to 5am.... ugh.

    Try ALLOW access from 5am to 11pm to that PCs IP address then? does that work? with a blocked service perhaps?

    if that doesn't work try this.

    policy 1 = time allowed to surf.
    policy 2 = 24hr deny access. (enter PC IP or mac address to block)

    policy 1 will override policy 2 until time of policy 1 is over. the policy 2 takes control (afaik)

    Ahh that makes perfect sense. It also allows for greater flexability. I may even want to interject another rule (weekends are 24 hour access allow). So you have, Rule #1 - School Nights Allow - 5am to 11pm (Sun-Thurs). Then You have Weekends are 24/7 Allow. Then 24 hour deny all-- School Nights Deny, for certain PCs. I have a test machine in the access list as well to test it out. I'll let you know how it goes.

    Right now I have it setup Shcool Nights Allow - 5am to 11pm ... then School Nights Deny, 24 hour (but only from Sun-Thurs.) I don't know if this setup will work...

    Thanks for the tip!

    The two-rule option did not work. Last night (Saturday) it turned off the access at 11pm. So now I'm trying the 3-rule option...

    This will not work. This is by design and the way it should be. Any security system should, by default, enforce the most restrictive policy above all others. This is the way it is supposed to be because it is better to be safe than sorry. The 24 hour deny policy will overrule any allow policy.
