Control the WiFi Radios
The modem router provides internal WiFi radios that broadcast signals in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz ranges.
By default, they are on so that you can connect over WiFi to the modem router. When the WiFi radios are
off, you can still use an Ethernet cable for a LAN connection to the modem router.
You can turn the WiFi radios on and off with the WiFi On/Off button on the modem router, or you can log
in to the modem router and enable or disable the WiFi radios through the modem router web pages. If you
are close to the modem router, it might be easier to press the WiFi On/Off button. If you are away from the
modem router or already logged in, it might be easier to enable or disable the radios through the modem
