I'm in the same boat. My only guess is we'll have to downgrade. I am seriously unhappy that Netgear us *REMOVING* features from a product *AFTER* I bought it. Unbelievable...

Where can you find the way?  Can you tell me more details?  I can't find the way to set the schedule.

That's not it. There used to be an option to actually turn off the wireless radios themselves on a schedule.

The option you posted just blocks services and isn't available in AP mode.

Oh Quentin, this is not I want.  I want to turn off wireless signal instead of block service...  Anyway, thank you for your reply. @.@

This is one of the reasons why I am buying this Router, can anyone from Netgear tell us whether this function will be available again?

A quick confirmation of me having this issue as well in order to keep this thread on the first page of this forum and hopefully draws Netgear's attention.

Hi, 

I was also really really disapointed when I realized the update removed the feature.  I don't want the wifi to be on at night.  

 

Can you please re-enable the feature ?

Will this feature be added back to the next Firmware?

3 Netgear will never answer you. The tech support doesn't even know that they removed the WiFi on off schedule feature.

OK, then I sent a tweet.  If tech support is not aware, at least commercials will be aware soon.  (Hoping that it won't be ignored by community manager).

Here is the current way to disable the wireless on a schedule

 

  1. Log into Orbi UI
  2. Go to Advanced -Security - Schedule
  3. Setup the time frame and days  on which they want to block internet access. See example below:

orbi 1.jpg

  1. Click Apply.
  2. Once schedule has been set go to Advanced - Security- Block Services
  3. Under Service Table section click on the Add button.
  4. On the Block Services Setup page use the setup below. If you want to block all but 1 IP you can configure the IP Address Range option and specify the entire IP range you want to block just make sure your IP is not part of that range if you do not want that specific IP blocked.

  1. Click Add, you will be taken back to Block Services page.
  2. On Block Services page select Per Schedule option under the Services Blocking section
  3. Click Apply.
  4. You internet access should now be blocked based on the schedule you set.

Re: Firmware 1.12.0.18 turn off wireless by schedule setting disappear

Hi Darren,

 

I don't want to schedule the blocking of internet access, I want to schedule the switching on/off of the wireless radio. This is what this thread is about.

 

The menu (see attached) to do this completely disappeared.

 

Thanks for taking this further to your engineers.

Hi,

 

this is a very important/critical feature for me too. Could we pls have an update from Netgear/Darren about a possible ETA for the fix ? This would be good customer service...
