Basically I want to dis-allow everything but yahoo messenger 8 during certain times of the day using the "access and restrictions" tab of the linksys firmware.

Which Linksys router are you using? It's relatively easy to get around most access restrictions on a home network, however, it is good first step to block certain undesirable services.

I think most 3d-party firewalls contain provisions for controlling access out and in...although I don't think any of those are geared to daily time changes for access. It's all or nothing :thumbsup: as far as access during the day, at least on the firewalls that I've tried/used.
