Open AirPort Utility, click Manual Setup
Click the Access tab below the row of icons
On MAC Access Control, select Timed Access and follow the prompts.
More info is available on pages 47-48 in the Designing AirPort Networks Guide

Currently Being ModeratedAug 16, 2009 5:10 AM (in response to Bob Timmons)I've thoroughly checked out that section and unless his connection is wifi I cannot limit his "on-time". I was also thinking that perhaps I could have the AEBS do nightly scheduled shutdowns and morning "wake ups". Any ideas?MacBook Pro 15" (new), Mac OS X (10.5.8), 4GB RAM, 500GB HD

Noticed this recently. You might want to investigate this and similar items. Try a google search for something like "limit connection time on the internet"

Currently Being ModeratedAug 16, 2009 6:16 AM (in response to SilverSurfer_C6)Hmm, what if I went about it in a completely different fashion. Could I use a Linksys as a main router and have the AEBS as an Access Point? If so would I use the "join a network" function?
This way, I know that the Linksys has Access Control functionality while the AEBS has killer wifi.MacBook Pro 15" (new), Mac OS X (10.5.8), 4GB RAM, 500GB HD
It worked. Kind of like scratching your left ear with your right hand. Had to turn wifi off of the Linksys to use the AEBS as an access point. Had to remember to connect in an e-port versus the wan port. Had to assign a static IP to the AEBS nd it all seems to work.
Any thoughts? Did I miss a step?MacBook Pro 15" (new), Mac OS X (10.5.8), 4GB RAM, 500GB HD
