Here is a bit of a trick I ran across -- you might see if it will work for you. General observation: If you start downloading using the Netflix app in windows, then disconnect from WiFi, Netflix will pause the download. If you then reconnect to WiFi, the Netflix app will resume the download. The trick: Based on this obervation a number of sites gives various methods to turn on the WiFi based upon using Windows Scheduler. If you google 'netsh turn on wifi' or similar you should find some detailed steps, if you don't mind tinkering a little. There are at least three different approaches: Dos batch file using the netsh command, a powershell approach, and an approach that mimicks keyboard input -- they are similar. With the dos batch file approach, you make a batch file (enable.bat) with the following line: netsh interface set interface name="Wi-Fi" admin = enabled where you fill in your Wi-Fi name. Then you schedule the batch file to run in the windows scheduler for 2:30am or so. To use the trick: Before sleeping, run the Netflix app in the evening, and select the shows to download, then switch back to the downloads screen, and disconnect your computer from Wi-Fi. You will see the download pause, but do nothing and just leave it sit. Later at 2:30am, the windows scheduler runs the job and the Wi-Fi reconnects and the download resumes. If you google that netsh command above, you should be able a number of steps giving a better explanation. Hope this general approach can be of some use for folks that don't mind tinkering a little....
