Disable WLAN based on time of day?

Hi there,

I was wondering if there is any way you can disable a WLAN based on a schedule to prevent access at certain times of the day on a 2106 WLC v4.1?

I have had a long look through command line reference and cannot find any way of achieving this, i wondered if anyone had any thoughts?

Thanks,

Hope this helps...

Notes for using ACL to restrict access based on time.

access-list 100 permit ip 10.0.0.0 0.0.0.255 20.0.0.0 0.0.0.255 time-range him

ap(config)#time-range him

ap(config-time-range)#?

Time range configuration commands:

absolute absolute time and date

default Set a command to its defaults

exit Exit from time-range configuration mode

no Negate a command or set its defaults

periodic periodic time and date

ap(config-time-range)#peri

ap(config-time-range)#periodic ?

Friday Friday

Monday Monday

Saturday Saturday

Sunday Sunday

Thursday Thursday

Tuesday Tuesday

Wednesday Wednesday

daily Every day of the week

weekdays Monday thru Friday

weekend Saturday and Sunday

ap(config-time-range)#peri

ap(config-time-range)#periodic mon

ap(config-time-range)#periodic monday ?

Friday Friday

Saturday Saturday

Sunday Sunday

Thursday Thursday

Tuesday Tuesday

Wednesday Wednesday

hh:mm Starting time

ap(config-time-range)#periodic monday 10:00 ?

to ending day and time

ap(config-time-range)#periodic monday 10:00 to 18:00

ap(config-time-range)#exit

Re: Disable WLAN based on time of day?

I'm not in front of one of my WLCs now to check, but as memory serves there are no time-range options for ACLs.

I dont see any documentation about it either:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk722/tk809/technologies_configuration_example09186a00807810d1.shtml

I'm not aware of a native WLC config to support this. If it's an 802.1x WLAN you could configure it on the RADIUS server.

You can't set this on the WLC. If you are doing authentication via radius, then like the other poster stated, you can do it there.

I concur. You can't do this at the controller level.

Why don't you setup a time based acl on the vlan interface for the guest on the L3 device.

Re: Disable WLAN based on time of day?

Thanks for the replies, i have decided to use a time based ACL on an intermediate router to which the AP's are connected.

This causes the AP's to loose communication with the WLC, so they are forced to reset, and the wireless network will come down.

A hack, but has the desired effect.
