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 web
management interface. 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 web management interface.
Use the WiFi On/Off Button
To turn the WiFi radios off and on with the WiFi On/Off button:
Press the WiFi On/Off button on the back panel of the modem router for two seconds.
If you turned off the WiFi radios, the WiFi LED turns off. If you turned on the WiFi radios, the
WiFi LED lights solid green.
Tip: If you want to disable the WiFi radio or radios of the modem router,
use a wired connection to avoid being disconnected when WiFi radio
or radios turn off.
