    Hi all,
    I'm would like to know if there is a certain software or method of disconnecting the internet automatically at a certain time. The ISP I have lets you download from a certain time (12am-12pm). I wanted to be able to download things during this time only and was wondering if there a way to disconnect the internet at about 11:30am.
    My computer is part of a network so i would like to disconnect the internet from my computer only. I have cable connection.
    Any help would be greatful. Thanks

    Many download managers have the option to auto-shutdown the PC after all downloads are finished,so using a download manager could be a solution.

    I use a product called Safe Eyes for parental controls. As one of its options, it allows you to limit the time spent online or to schedule the time when the internet is available. I was able to use the coupon code XJHG1296AK to receive $10 off, but I don't know if it is still working.
