How do I turn wireless OFF?

I’ve just started to use the Technicolor TG582n gateway that came with my new fibre installation.  I don’t use wireless so how do I turn it OFF so that it isn’t a security problem?
Thanks

Press the WiFI button on the top of the router.  Cheesy

Long press and hold until the light goes out. Short press to turn it back on.

You see I never knew that. I have been doing it via the control panel - nice one Smiley

The button is well hidden, I bet most people think it's just a light.

When you press a button and nothing happens you might assume that it does nothing.
You might not think to press and hold for a few seconds.
At my age it has become instinctive to try a press and hold if a press doesn't work.

Reminds me of the boot release button in my car - I reported it as not working at the first service and was very nicely told that I needed to hold it in for several seconds  Embarrassed
