  2. Click "Schedule" in the "Wireless" ("WLAN") menu.
  3. Enable the option "Use schedule for wireless radio network" and define when the wireless network should be turned off.

    Note:You can find further information on the settings options in the FRITZ!Box's online help, which you can access by clicking the "Help" icon .

  4. Click "Apply" to save your settings.

Now the schedule for the wireless network is enabled.

Note:Regardless of the schedule, you can enable or disable the wireless network at any time by briefly pushing the "WLAN" button or entering the keypad code #96*1* or #96*0* on a telephone connected to the FRITZ!Box.
