    This won't help you for now, but, when Leopard (OS X 10.5) comes out in October, it has exactly this feature built in.

    Depending on your router, you might be able to set times for access to port 80 (the one used by browsers).

    It doesn't sound like that... if it controls access to a port through the router then it should only affect browsing the internet. How would that restrict the whole computer?

    The bolded area should answer your question why, since the method you were refering to was setting a limit on time for a port on the router.
