Is there a way to shut the router completely at fixed time, say 1am in night ?

I don't know of any home routers that have a function to power off completely by themselves, unless they go kaput. :p

What exactly are you trying to achieve? some routers do support dropping the internet connection on demand, even the 777vr1 should, but for the 777vr1 it is only when the connection is idle.

I want the Radio Waves to not interefere my sleep. Basically I am trying to turn off RF Radiation at my specific time (1 in the night till 8 in the morning)

Do you make sure that all your neighbours turn off their wifi too so that you can have an undisturbed sleep?

:D how many wireless networks does your phone shows at this very moment? just curious.

i mean i get it. wireless routers are known to disrupt sleep. my house has like four routers and that probably explain why i cannot get a peaceful night of sleep. but even if i shut down off at night... there are like 6 other wireless networks from neighbors that are accessible from my room ?

anyhow. if your router does not have an internal feature, one way would be to get a smart switch that comes with a programmable mobile app. though it might end up costing more than a decent router with internal feature.

Some newer router does come with a WiFi switch. My Nighthawk R7000 has one. I've also seen it on some cheapo TP-LINK ones too.

But it won't solve your purpose as you can't turn off your neighbour's WiFi.

Oh tis the wifi that you want turned off, most routers have a button on then that can do that exact job for you, maybe the 777vr1 one has that too? Don't have one so can't say. Some can even do it in the firmware as well.

Yeah but like he said, the wifi toggle isn't restricted to only the super high end routers. My good ol' WNDR 3700 too has the button. :p

You can run a script on DDWRT to turn it on or off as well.
