Re: How to turn off broadband on wireless router

Hi Markw21


at the top of the router there are 2 'push' buttons, one is a padlock (this is the WPS - WiFi Protected Setup) and the other is illustrated with a circle with brackets (((o))) this is the WiFi Switch.  Press and hold it for 3 seconds and the light will go off.  WiFi is now disabled.  Repeat the process to re-enable the wireless radio.


You can also disable the WiFi from within the router setup page.


Open a browser --> Type in the address bar --> press enter --> Username = admin, Password = changeme --> click login --> click Wireless Settings on the left hand side of the page --> Uncheck the box Enable Wireless --> click Apply
