encase anyone else needs to know.



Step I: Disabling the wireless settings

1 Connect any one of your computers to the Router using an Ethernet cable.
2 Open Internet Explorer or any other browser and access the site:
http://192.168.1.1, http://10.0.0.1 or http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm. By default, the username is "admin" and the password is "password" [If you have changed the password then try with that password].
3 Click Wireless Settings under Advanced.
4 Uncheck the two boxes that say "Enable Wireless Router Radio" and “Enable SSID Broadcast". Apply the settings.
5 Click Setup Access List. Uncheck the option "Turn access control ON”. Apply the settings.
6 Please check whether the wireless is disabled.
