    Hi friends,

    I am a newbie here and it looks like there are a lot of experts on this forum.
    I am completely ignorant how to setup a router ...:frown:

    Could somebody tell me how i can disable the wireless signal on a LinkSys_wrt300 N ? Should i disable the "Netork mode" (1) or should i disable the "Wireless SSID Broadcast" (2) . I assume that i should go for option (2) but i donot understand the diference bewteen these two setttings.

    Thanks in advance for any help on this subject.

    Turning off "SSID broadcast" is not the same that turning off WIFI ;-). I don't think that official firmware supports it, but in Tomato (I supose DD-WRT has this feature too) is possible to turn off WIFI

    PS: Tomato isn't compatible with WRT300
