Control the WiFi radios
The router’s internal WiFi radios 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 router. When the WiFi
radios are off, you can still use an Ethernet cable for a LAN connection to the router.
You can turn the WiFi radios on and off with the WiFi On/Off button on the router, or
you can log in to the router and enable or disable the WiFi radios. If you are close to
the router, it might be easier to press its WiFi On/Off button. If you are away from the
router or already logged in, it might be easier to enable or disable them.

To turn the WiFi radios off and on with the WiFi On/Off button:
Press the WiFi On/Off button on the top of the router for two seconds.
If you turned off the WiFi radios, the WiFi On/Off LED and the WPS LED turn off. If
you turned on the WiFi radios, the WiFi On/Off LED and the WPS LED light.
