    Hi all,

    First of all : sorry for bad english.

    I was wondering if it is possible to stop the wifi for a limited time period, like 1AM to 6AM for example.

    And when I say stop wifi ; it's not only stop wireless access or kill essid, but also stop the emission of microwaves. Is it virtualy possible ?

    I noticed there is a scheduler tab in the administation section, do you think that adding some kinf of command like ifdown vlan0 may help ?
    Or with some kind of bash script (I'm a total noob in this, but I can learn) ?

    Thanks for your help !

    Go to access restriction and disable wifi.

    Thanks, never though to look at this option. This firmware is so great : already contains all I need.

    Just for information, where are stored those rules in the router filesystem ?

    don't know, sorry.
    It doesn't seems to be in the crontab.

    Tomato generally stores this type of information in non-volatile ram. Look for variables starting with rrule.
