Turning off wifi but not the router itself

Hi
Just wondered if there is anyway of disabling wifi without having to turn the router off completely?
Many thanks
Jac

Cheers for that, though I don't think my kids will thank you as much!  Wink

If they are smart, they will use the reset button when you go shopping  Grin

If its a standard TG582n then there is a Wifi button on the top of the router, short press turns it ON , long press ( hold until light goes out ) turns it OFF.
I won't tell the kids about it if you don't Wink

Re: Turning off wifi but not the router itself

Wow MisterW brilliant that's a much simpler solution! I am honestly only thinking of the welfare of my two step daughters (12 and 15)......... They cannot get a signal on their phones so wifi is their only way of communicating until the early hours, the little darlings  Roll eyes  I am not an evil step mum ...honest  Lips are sealed
