disconnect router automatically after set amount of time

I have a four port Linksys Ethernet router that I'm using in a home network.  I can go into the router setup and disconnect the router manually by going to the status tab and clicking disconnect, but is there a way to set the router to disconnect automatically after a specified amout of time or at a specified time?

If so, how?  Or, possibly another option?

Thanks for any help.

Not knowing exactly what model you have, here is what I can do with my router.  It is not exactly disconnected, but there is no traffic that can pass through it.

Go to the access restrictions tab, Name the filter whatever you want, enable it, and then deny access.  you can then select the days/hours that you want access denied.  From there, you will also need to edit the list of pc's....probably the best way to do that would be to select the IP range, and just select from 1 to 255, unless you have your pc's set up with static, and then you can just select the individual IP addresses.

Hi Wcombee,

Thanks for replying to my post.  I have a filters tab in the advanced section of the router setup where I can specify IP ranges to block internet access, which works.  However, I don't see any area where I can specify the days/hours to deny access?
