How can I shutdown Wireless at night?

We have several Cisco WLC 2100 series.  I need to find a way to shut out or down the wireless for guest users overnight.  I can't find any timing setting or something.  Thanks for any input you have.

Hello,

The WLC itself does not have a time-based setting for WLAN availability. However, there are several alternative solutions:

- Use of scheduled templates from WCS

- Time-based ACL on wired infrastructure (clients will still be able to connect, but traffic would not flow)

- Creative use of cronjob/scripts that telnet/ssh to your WLCs at scheduled times and issue:

At night: config wlan disable

In the morning: config wlan enable

There are probably other ways to achieve this functionality as well.

I agree with Pat.  You have the following options:

1.  If you have WCS, you can create scheduled templates when each SSID or radio gets enabled or disabled;

2.  You can create time-based ACL to allow/deny CAPWAP/LWAP protocol; or

3.  If your APs are connected into PoE ports, you can enable EnergyWise.
