I'd like to meet the person who sold you a C5210 for 15 APs... best sales person ever :-)

You'd do that with Extreme Managment Center.
1) it includes scripts to disable/enable WLAN services at a certain time = disable in the evening and enable in the morinning.
2) With Extreme Control you'd configure rules that only work at a certain time = don't allow authentication

Cheers,
Ron

No, there is no such feature in the controller.

Angel,
Check out the instructions for a script you can use to enable/disable at certain times of day:

Also, if you have NAC, you could just assign a different role at different times.

Angel, Jeremy is correct. In NAC, there is rule components calls "Time of Day" which allows you to specify network access requirements or restrictions based on the day and time when the end user is accessing the network. For example, traditional work hours or weekend work hours.

Also, if you want to change the default expiration for guest registration in NAC.

Another possibility is to use the script to disable inline power ... more efficiency :) and enable it in the morning

You could also write a script that you install in the wireless controller's crontab.  You could have it shut off the network port.  Assuming you're BHWC... and not the AP.
