    Hi, you can often set this up through your router, depends on the router though. SO what Wifi router do you have?
    Let me Google that for you...

    A swift look suggested hyPeroptic routers do not have parental controls, and ppl recommend you get an additional router to achieve what you want. You may be able to do it on the tablet itself using 3rd party software like Qustodio, which is free for a single tablet I think, not used it in a while myself though

    Forgive me if I get the wrong impression but you write cut off wi-fi not Internet.
    So is your aim to save battery power (router method would have little or no effect on that -third party software applies) or prevent access to network -router set up often best, depending upon router!

    Can't you just set an alarm on the tablet, and then turn wifi off manually when the alarm goes off?

    You could use various automation tools - IFTTT is pretty simple to use

    You need the app installed on your phone, then create 'applets' on their website

    To turn off wifi at a given time, you would create a 'date time' trigger and use it with the 'android device' service.

    You'd probably want one that will turn it back on at a certain time. There would be nothing stopping a user from turning it back on again though once it is off.

    Alternatively, there are android apps like Tasker that could be used for the same task.

    +1 for Tasker .. Best app on the market .. Also allows you to create standalone apps

    I've not played with Tasker in years.. but I've still got it installed and it was really simple to create a profile, then a task, to do this wifi switching

    They have the app factory now, that lets you create "children" .. as stand alone apps (APK's)


    So you can create utils for other people

    I suspect it is to stop a child using the internet after a certain time, but the OP hasn't confirmed their reasoning so we're just wildly guessing until they do.

    Cant you just ban the mac/ip address, on the router? A bit manual but I know I have this on my router?

    Cheats way is to change the router wifi key in the eve, but also a manual process.

    You could also not tell them rhat wifi password and set up yout own hotspot for them to connect to using this http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/wifi_hotspot_starter.html

    If you generally want to see who is on your wifi try this http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/wireless_network_watcher.html

    If you want the wifi to cut out at a certain time on an android there are plenty of apps to do it. No one mentioned parental controls.

    edit: here's an app exactly for what OP wants - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.zeiger.android.wifitimer

    I've noticed that this OP is almost always very brief with their posts, never adding detail or context, such that people have to interpret or guess what is actually being asked.

    OP would help themself if they treated this as a forum not a message board and actually spent time composing proper questions.

    I would suggest "Go and take the tablet off them" since there's plenty of things (e.g. games) that don't need internet access.
