    Do you know where I can find (in which file) the option which turn wifi enabled at startup? I want to modify it to off. I need the situation that after reboot the radio will be disabled (now it is on automatically) and later (if I want) i could switch it on by ses button. Maybe I could use any short init script?

    Yes I want to get this disabled after rebooting, but automatically without my interference.

    In that case, just set the Access Restriction to disable wireless for all day every day. Then whenever u want wireless just enable it manually.

    The OP has a good point. For the router to come up in the "most secure" mode by default, it should default to radio off, even after a factory reset. If someone has physical access to the reset button, it is easy to disable WiFi security with just a push of a button. Also, a router setup as an AP reset to factory would turn on the DHCP server, something that one may not want to see show up on a network with external DHCP server.

    Ah, I think the "enable wireless" option actually remembers its state between reboots, instead of always on or always off. Maybe you can put "wl radio off" in a startup script?
