Is it possible to disable specfic Lan ports or Label Lan ports in Shibby's Tomato?

    I have a situation where I need to be able to disable a Lan port that goes to a specific room, my house is hard wired so main areas have a Lan connection available.

    When I go in to Shibby's Tomato, I always saw the status of the Ethernet ports and the configure button near by, I thought it would have been as simple as going there and having a disable option but I don't see it.

    Also, is there any way to label the ports, like giving my Lan 1 a description of Movie Room, etc?

    No option to disable a port. No option to name a port.

    You can script disabling the port using robocfg.

    Oh those would be nice options for Shibby to add, does he take requests?

    Where can I find robocfg?

    you might set this port on Advanced->VLANs to unbriged/Bridge None - so according to Routing this port is disabled

    It's already on the router. Enter robocfg at the command line.

    darkknight's suggestion on using the VLAN page will work, but forces a reboot when changing the setting.
