Access controls by device, by day

Hello everyone, this is my first time working with a router that would have "custom" firmware and loading it on the router.  I have a few questions, I picked up the R7000 thinking it would have the customization that I'm looking for but the stock firmware does not.  What I'm looking for is a way to control by device that's on the network and also control that particular device by each different day.  So each day would have different time restrictions (Monday say 9a - 10p, Tues 9a-8:30p, etc)

If I load the DD-WRT firmware on this new R7000 would it give me this access? The stock firmware I noticed can do a specific time restriction by IP address but it's all the same time frame and not by the different days.

Thanks for the help!

I'm hoping you get and answer

I'm hoping you get and answer for this, as this is exactly what I need also. I have kids in school that I allow access at different times depending on day of week mostly because of school.

I would be very nice to have several groups of devices that can have different control times on the same day and be able to change them per day if desired.

This info at dd-wrt would

This info at dd-wrt would seem to support what we both are looking for. Can have 10 rules. So I could use a rule during Mon-Fri for one set of times and a second rule to cover the weekends. Costs me 2 rules per group if I want weekday and weekend rules but not bad, even nicer I can block by MAC address instead of IP address. So my kids can't just use a manual ip address to get around a time of day restriction.

Hopefully someone with more experience with dd-wrt will verfiy that I did indeed understand this correctly.
