I have an airport base station model A1354. I am attempting to setup MAC Timed Access so a laptop can only connect between 5:00AM and 11:00pm through the Airport Utility version 5.5.2 (552.11). My AEBS is running firmware version 7.5.2

When I try to enter the time values by double clicking over the time and entering 05:00 AM and 11:00PM the time values don't stay as soon as it looses focus. Instead they become what is in the following screenshot, and the laptop looses connectivity as soon as I update the base station. I also tried entering the values in military time with the same result.

Here is the requested screenshot: Access Control panel

  • Can you post a screenshot of the Airport panel before you clicked on Access Control? Commented Feb 2, 2011 at 1:38

    I'm confused, how did you add the screenshot for Bill? I mean is this his screenshot or yours? Commented Feb 2, 2011 at 22:09
  • It was actually the 'Access Control' tab I was interested in seeing and in particular, Bills settings. Thanks anyway tho Commented Feb 2, 2011 at 22:20
  • I was able to edit the question and add the screenshot. Commented Feb 5, 2011 at 17:29

When you've altered the times, click the '+' button so a second line appears, then click 'Done'.

  • Beautiful! Haha, it's funny but that's not very intuitive. Glad that sorted it. Commented Feb 5, 2011 at 18:19

Are you typing your times in the following format: HH:MM ? as in, with a space between the time and AM/PM? I know this sounds like a stupid question, but my AEBS has done some stupid things when I tried to type it without the space (e.g. 12:43PM).
