Title: Overnight Disable ?
Post by: iaw4 on November 25, 2016, 12:45:26 PM

DIR-850L, A:

Is there a simple how-to guide to disabling the internet between, say, midnight and 6am, both incoming and outgoing?

I have found scheduling and created an overnight rule...but what do I do now?

 Router Access Control, Blocking, Web Filters and Scheduling FAQ (http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=56479.0)
To set up scheduling:
1. Reserve device IP addresses ON the router under Setup/Networking.
2. Set up a schedule under Tools/Schedule on the routers web page. Customize your dates and times here.
3. Use Advanced/Access Control configured and apply the customized schedule to a policy and to the PC(s) or device(s) desired to be controlled. 
4. Ensure Time is set correctly on the router. Tools/Time.

I do believe Setup/Networking/DNS Relay and or Setup/Internet/Manual/Advanced DNS Services need to be enabled along with configuring Reserved IP addresses, Scheduling, and Access Controls.

thank you.  actually, I want to turn off not one served IP (or PC) selectively, but the entire WAN to the LAN at night.  is this simpler?

I don't believe DIR series routers can do this. It's always ON and connected to the ISP modem. Most routers are always connected and generally online all the time for accessibility. The control filters offers help with blocking certain IP addresses or sites when needed.
