    I need some help, please:
    I've found these interesting cron-job for the wrt-dd
    "This is a cron job that will run every hour and turn off the radio if no clients are connected as requested"
    0 * * * * root [ -z `wl assoclist` ] && wl radio off

    Could someone translate it to tomato busybox-cron.
    Is there an option to run it under custom sheduler?
    I have no skills in cron/scripting...sorry.

    That command looks as if it will work as-is with cron.
    For the scheduler, you can run it as-is or maybe change it to
    test -z `wl assoclist` && wl radio off
    (basically the same thing; '[ ... ]' is shorthand for the test command)

    Hi ntest7

    It you said.

    But i need some more help:
    After the sheduled "radio off" the power-led is still blinking.

    You just turned off the wireless (radio), not the whole router - the router still has power and the wired connections, if any, still works.
