Wireless router advice for home network

I need a wireless router that I can program to turn on/off based on the day of the week.  For example I would like it to shut off at 9pm Sun-Thu night so kids cannot access, but keep it on until midnight on Fri-Sat.

Ideally I would like it to support a separate wireless account so adults can work past the kids bed time, but that is not a requirement nor something I will be a significantly higher price for.

Thanks!

Hello
Some Netgear (Nighthawk models) routers have the functionality to turn off the wireless signal manually or by schedule

The cheapest option would be to get a power socket timer that would turn off the power to the router/access point during the times noted. I believe the digital ones allow you to set the on/off time based on day where as the analogue would do the same time every day.
