Router with programmable on-off times?

    I'm looking for a router that can be programmed to turn off and on its
    wifi signal (but access to the LAN or WAN) at certain times of day.

    I'm still a bit tinfoil-hatty about wifi exposure for my kids and I
    want to cut the wifi signal off in the evening and overnight to limit
    their exposure when they're asleep. Without re-igniting the
    argument, I suspect wifi is likely safe but I like to error on the
    side of caution with this sorts of things.

    The old D-link router I have can limit incoming connections to certain
    times of day, but it doesn't have the facility to turn the wifi signal
    on and off.

    I tried writing an Applescript routine to do it from my OSX, but had
    inconsistent results.

    I don't know if there's any router with this ability in its firmware.
    Any suggestions of make/model appreciated.
