I have found how to create a TIME RANGE under Security > Access Control > Time Range, however I do not know how to apply this Time Range to either a specific VLAN or WLAN or User Role. I only want to apply it to the Guest Portal and not our WLANs we use for access to our domain.
Any advice would be apprecaited.

If you want to only have a WLAN available for a particular period of Time, you would configure a "Deny" time range (when you do not want anyone to connect), then you would insert that in the Virtual AP under Deny Time Range. Configuration> Wireless> AP Configuration. Edit your ap-group. Expand Wireless LAN. Expand Virtual AP. Click on the virtual AP you want to apply it to. In the right pane insert your deny time range in the Deny Time Range field and click on apply in the lower right hand corner.
Remember, the Deny Time range is the range when you want traffic to be Denied, not allowed... Also make sure the time on the controller is set correctly, to avoid any issues.

ok, great that makes sense.
I'm in the Time Range configuration now -
How would I set this up in Time Range?
I want to turn off a WLAN from 7pm - 7am each weekday + all weekend?
i just tried adding a weekend time range, but when i hit apply it just dissapears?
thanks in advance

Add a periodic range on all weekdays from 19:00 - 23:59 and 00:00 to 07:00. Also, add a range for all weekend days. Make sure you save that time range with a name such as "no_WLAN_access". Then, as Cjoseph said, go into the VAP for that SSID and select the time range above from the Deny Time Range drop down box.

I just noticed you other issue (where the time range just disappears).
Make sure you click Add on the main Time Range screen to start configuring a new range. Click the periodic button, then enter a name for the range. Click the add button, fill in the range info and click done. Once that is done, click add again and put the next range in and click done. Once you have all of the range info entered, click apply. The time range should be created now. All thats left to do add it to the VAP and save the configuration.

Are you sure you clicked the "Done" button before you click the "Apply" button? If you click the "Apply" button before you click "Done", the changes wont be saved and the Time Range wont exist.

No, didn't see that. Sorry.
Can you log into the CLI and issue the commands shown in the lower window? That should give us an idea why these are getting rejected.
