Automatically switching wireless on and off on my router

Last response: in Wireless Networking

I have a US Robotics 9106 wireless router. Most of my network is wired but I have one or 2 devices that connect wirelessly - but they always do so between specific hours each day. I am wondering if there is some way to automate switching the wireless access on and off so that it is available between these times but not at others.

Anyone out there got any ideas? All help MUCH appreciated. Thanks!

If it's very clever the router may have a time feature on the Access List. That's the means to filter in or out users according to the unique MAC ID assigned to their wireless adapter by the manufacturer.

On most routers it's a simple include or exclude facility -- but some might offer the option of assigning a time as well to include/exclude as well.
