Turn off wireless

Turn off wireless

I would like to turn off the wireless and just use a separate wireless router I have connected to the modem/router. How can I disable the wireless and still have modem connectivity?

Put the gateway in Bridge Mode.

Re: Turn off wireless

Putting in bridge mode doesn’t completely turn off WiFi. It seems to “hide” it but still on.

If there is no SSID, then it can't be accessed.
