      Automatically setting Wireless off or target noise margin?

      Further to my recent errors, by boosting the target noise margin using the mognuts util, I seem to have a much more reliable connection, no evening dropouts.

      The problem is I want to power off my unit overnight a) to save electricity and b) to stop WiFi in the house when the kids are asleep.

      So when I do that I loose my target noise margin setting.

      Is there a way to automate this, or is there a way to disable WiFi automatically, say from, midnight until 7am?

      I've found a way to permanently change the DNS servers to OpenDNS by editing and reloading the Netgear CFG file after editing it, and was hoping to be able to do something similair for the target noise margin??

      Cheers,

      Greg

      No, there's no way to set a schedule to turn the wireless off.

      To get round the noise margin issue you could use Mossywells utility which I believe allows you to set a target noise margin.
