    Question about a wireless router....

    Does anyone know if the wireless function can be turned off? (we have a d-link router)
    We don´t really use it so there´s no point having it on.
    I couldn´t see anything about it in the admin menu...


    Thanks in advance

    We have a DI 514...
    Is "SSID Broadcast" the thing you mean?

    Just read that the ssid broadcast thing´s the feature that sends out the name of your connection
    (so it gets displayed on wireless devices when you search for connections)
    I disabled that for now..no one else needs to see it and if we need to use it, I know the name of our connection.
    Still weird that I can´t just turn the wireless function off??

    Nope. Not in the menu..anywhere

    simple, un plug it

    your setting will be stored in the device.

    I've had loads of power cuts and it's always come back on ok

    If so, change the top option to 'disabled' and that should be it.
