here wasn't much of a description of the problem you encountered, but most issues with timed based access can be traced to

1) Wrong time zone set in RF Domain
2) Not using a valid NTP server

Sorry, i wrote on my mobile.

I'm trying to figure why does not Time Base Access is not working.
I've created a Wlan, and just schedule the time that is broadcasting.


My problem is that still broadcasting even out of that time.

See the on-line help

To configure Time Based Access for this WLAN, click + Add Row and configure each of the following options: Days Select a day of the week to apply this access policy. Selecting All will apply the policy every day. Selecting weekends will apply the policy on Saturdays and Sundays only. Selecting weekdays will apply the policy on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday only. Selecting individual days of the week will apply the policy only on the selected day(s).Start Time This value sets the starting time the WLAN is activated. Use the spinner controls to select the hour and minute, in a 12h time format. Then use the radio button to choose AM or PM.End Time This value sets the ending time of day(s) the WLAN is disabled. Use the spinner controls to select the hour and minute, in a 12h time format. Then use the radio button to choose AM or PM.

Hi Andy,

Done that, still not work.

From the screenshot sent, you'd like the AP to broadcast everyday only from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM. When you configured this from GUI did you click on OK >> Exit >> OK again >> Commit and Save?

SSH into the AP and run the following commands:

>en
#conf t
#wlan wlan1
#show context | include time

What do you see in regards to time based access?

You should see this:

time-based-access days all start 13:00 end 14:00

What is the model of the AP?
Which firmware version is it on?

Chirstoph,

My configuration is the following:

wlan wlan1
ssid XXXXXXX
vlan 1
bridging-mode local
encryption-type ccmp
authentication-type none
fast-bss-transition
wpa-wpa2 psk 0 XXXXX
wpa-wpa2 tkip-countermeasures hold-time 0
time-based-access days all start 13:00 end 14:00
data-rates 2.4GHz gn
client-load-balancing

AP7632 version 5.9.2.1-009R

Thanks

Hello Carlos,

Config looks ok. As Andy said, please open case for further troubleshooting;however, you may want to test by removing this rule (no time-based-access days all) and try to add rules for individual days to see if this helps resolve issue. Maybe use weekends and weekdays instead of all. Do this from CLI and not GUI.

#conf t
#wlan wlan1
#no time-based-access days all
#time-based-access days monday start 13:00 end 14:00
and so on.
#com wr

Test.

Chris,

I've rebuild the cfg thru CLI.

wlan wlan1
ssid XXX
vlan 1
bridging-mode local
encryption-type ccmp
authentication-type none
fast-bss-transition
wpa-wpa2 psk 0 XXXXXX
wpa-wpa2 tkip-countermeasures hold-time 0
time-based-access days wednesday start 15:10 end 15:30
data-rates 2.4GHz gn
client-load-balancing

Let's see in 10 minutes

If they come in only on a specific day of the week from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM to take inventory and don't need the WLAN to be up for the rest of the week, then yes all you need is one line for that specific day and the rest of the week the wlan will be off.

But it did not worked 😞 Now i'm trying with 3 lines:

vlan 1
bridging-mode local
encryption-type ccmp
authentication-type none
fast-bss-transition
wpa-wpa2 psk 0 XXXXXX
wpa-wpa2 tkip-countermeasures hold-time 0
time-based-access days wednesday start 16:00 end 17:00
time-based-access days thursday start 16:00 end 17:00
time-based-access days friday start 16:00 end 17:00
data-rates 2.4GHz gn
client-load-balancing

Lets see. If not, i will open a case 🙂
I've done it on AP6522 with WiNG 5.5.6 on the past.. 🙂

Hi
AP7522 version 5.9.1.3.
no problem... Impossible to connect but the SSID still broadcasted.

ap7522-A77394(config-wlan-STGLOG)#show context |include time
time-based-access days wednesday start 16:31 end 16:38

Right i confirm that, but i want the to disable the wlan (not even broadcasting) thru Time Base Access 🙂

The feature is designed to prohibit connectivity of wireless clients to the specific time based WLANs. The feature does not shutdown/disable the WLAN from beaconing.
