General recommendations for turning off Wi-Fi on the router

Cases when someone may need to disable Wi-Fi on the router, quite rare, but possible. For example, if the Internet man uses directly through the cable or needs to restrict access to the wireless network to the child. It is also recommended to turn off the router during a thunderstorm - the non-disabled device after it can stop working as a result of the voltage jump inside the network.

On modern models of routers, in addition to the power button, there is a button to turn off the wireless network. By clicking on it, you do not turn off the router itself, but the wireless network will stop working a few seconds later. It is impossible to confuse these buttons, since they are most often signed accordingly, and the power button is highlighted by its design.

If there is no button to turn off the wireless network or broken, you can turn off the Wi-Fi network remotely.

TP-LINK.

Perhaps the most popular router. On its rear panel, where the network cable connects to the router, the Little Wi-Fi ON / OFF button is located. It should be clamped it for a few seconds - and wireless communication will disappear from all devices. Include Wi-Fi back can be in the same way. Be careful, as there is a similar button signed by otherwise - WPS / RESET - they can easily be confused.

To remotely turn off Wi-Fi on TP-LINK , You should go to the router settings through any device that has a connection to it, and perform the following steps:

  1. In the browser's address bar, enter 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 (depending on the model) and press ENTER. You can still use the third option - http://tplinkwifi.net/.

  3. Click on the "Wireless Mode" tab - "Settings".
  4. Remove the checkbox from the "Enable Wireless Broadcast" item. Turn on wireless broadcasting
  5. After that, save the settings. In some models, the router will briefly reboot.

The inclusion occurs in the same way.

ASUS

Many ASUS router models have a button on the rear panel, which is responsible for the same function - disabling the wireless network. It can be called Wireless ON / OFF. Hold it and hold for a few seconds. The indicator will go out, indicating that the network is successfully disabled.

If there is no such button, you need to use the remote disconnection through any device connected to the router:

  1. In the address bar of the browser, we introduce 192.168.1.1 and go to the router by pressing ENTER.
  2. You will need a password and login. We use the word admin for this. Password and login
  3. On the main page, find the section "Wireless Network", go through it.
  4. In the window that appears, find the "Enable Radio Module" option and click on the switch. Turn on the radio module
  5. Save the settings.

D-Link

Perhaps there is a button on the rear panel in your model, but usually a wireless network on a D-Lin can only be disabled in a remote way:

  1. Connect through any connected device.
  2. In the browser's address bar, we write 192.168.0.1 and press ENTER.
  3. Using to enter Admin .3. Use to enter Admin
  4. We are looking for a section called Wi-Fi, go through it in the "Basic Settings" subsection.
  5. Opposite "Enable Wireless Connection" you need to remove a tick. Enable wireless connection

  1. In the browser address bar, enter 192.168.1.1 or my.kenetic.net, press ENTER.
  2. Login and Password - Admin .
  3. Go to the Wireless Network tab (it is depicted as the steps), it is located in the center on the bottom panel.
  4. Remove the box next to "Enable Access Point". Enable access point
  5. Save settings.

Possible problems and their solution

Even experienced masters have problems when the Wi-Fi is turned off on the router. Consider the most frequent of them.

Login and password do not coincide / cannot login at the specified address through the browser

To do this, you need to look at the sticker of the router, which is located directly under it. It contains all the information: the address is specified by which you can get into the web interface, as well as factory login and password.

If it does not help, you should reset the router to the factory settings. To do this, clamp the WPS / RESET button for 10 seconds. On some models, it is signed simply reset, and it is possible to clamp it only with a thin object (rod, handle). Now login and password are suitable.

I dropped the router to the factory settings, but I still can not log in at the specified address

Check if the device is connected to the router.

I accidentally clicked on WPS and do not know what happened

WPS (it is a Wi-Fi Protected Setup or QSS) is needed so that you can connect to the wireless router network without entering a login and password, which is very convenient. Sometimes there may be a short PIN, which can be changed directly in the router through the web interface.

I have an English version of the router, and I don't know this language

In the English version you will need sections with the words "Wireless" and / or Wireless Settings, sometimes "Advanced Setup".

Following the proposed instructions, you can quickly disable Wi-Fi on the router. If something fails, it is desirable to repeat all actions again. You can always turn on Wi-Fi again, following a similar algorithm.

How to turn off the router, or Wi-Fi network?

At first glance, very simple, and at the same time an ambiguous question. Almost always, when I was asked about how to turn off the router, had Introduction How to disable Wi-Fi network. So that the router does not distribute Wi-Fi, and the Internet on the cable on the connected devices continued to work. In this article we will analyze both options. We also show you how to quickly disable, and if necessary, enable Wi-Fi network using a special button on the router housing, or from a computer, phone, tablet - via the control panel. Consider on the example of routers from popular manufacturers: TP-Link, ASUS, D-Link, ZyXEL. If you have another router, the article may come in handy. Since all actions are practically the same on all devices.

You may need to completely disable the router. For example, when you leave somewhere, or you do not need the Internet. In this case, it is best to just turn off the power adapter from the outlet. And it is also desirable to pull out the cable from the router, according to which the Internet comes. This is the case if there is a thunderstorm. To the router did not suffer. He wrote about this in a separate article: after a thunderstorm stopped working Wi-Fi router.

Power of the router can also be disabled with the "POWER ON / OFF" button.

Button to turn off the router

True, not on all routers there is such a button. As a rule, it is not on budget models.

It concerns full shutdown. But as I have already written above, most often you need to disable only Wi-Fi distribution. To continue the Internet on the computer and other devices on the cable.

How to turn off the Wi-Fi network with the button and through the settings (remotely)

On the case of most models of routers there is a "Wi-Fi ON / OFF" button. Depending on the model and the manufacturer, this button may be in different places, and can be signed in different ways. But it is not difficult to find it. Just click on this button (perhaps to hold 3 seconds) And Wi-Fi will completely turn off. Wi-Fi indicator should go out. The router will not distribute the wireless network until you turn it on again using the button.

If there is no such button on your router, you can disable the wireless network in the control panel to which you can go from a computer, smartphone, or tablet.

Important moment! Do not disconnect the wireless network through the control panel if you have all devices are connected via Wi-Fi, and there is no possibility to go to the router settings on the cable. Disconnecting the Wi-Fi network, you will not be able to enable it, as you can not connect to the network and go to the web interface.

Turn off Wi-Fi on TP-LINK

As a rule, this can be done with the "Wi-Fi ON / OFF" button, or "Wireless ON / OFF". To disable Wi-Fi, you need to hold the button pressed about 5 seconds.

Button to disconnect Wi-Fi on TP-LINK

The corresponding indicator should go out, and the wireless network will disappear. To enable back, you just need to press and hold the button for a couple of seconds. There are no such buttons on budget models of type: TP-Link TL-WR740N, TL-WR841ND, TL-WR840N, etc.

You can also go to the router settings, in the "Wireless" section (Wireless mode) , remove a tick from the "Enable Wireless Router Radio" item (Include wireless broadcasting) and save settings.

On this topic, I wrote a separate article: how to disable Wi-Fi on the Zyxel Keenetic router.

That's all. You can leave questions in the comments. Everyone will definitely answer. Good luck!

Let's start in order, in order to disable WiFi distribution on the router, we need to enter the router settings, for someone it will be difficult to do, but we will try to set out in detail. For example, I will show on Rostelecom and MGTS subscribers. These operators have a very large set of various ADSL and GPON technology routers. Select each one, and go through the settings, if you read everything carefully, even with the models of other routers problems in order to disable WiFi you will not have.

I hope you understand that after you manage to turn off the wireless network, access to the router or terminal will be possible, only through a network cable, using a network card, so make these settings consciously, and only after you managed to configure the local network connection . Read more with the settings you can read here:

How to find out the password from wifi

In order to go to enter the router settings, we need a login and password from WiFi and the router itself, it is important not to confuse the login and password from the WiFi network, with the login and password from the router, as they differ. Typically, data for logging into a router and connect to WiFi, you are issued when concluding a contract. In this case, clarify these data from the operator. In most cases, the router is already being configured from the factory, and its login and password, both from the WiFi-network, and from the login to the router settings, is indicated on the router housing, and this data can be found on its label or box.

Data for entering the router

Currently, in almost every apartment there is a router, which is responsible for the wireless connection to the network. Often in people using such devices, problems arise with the disconnection of the Wi-Fi network. To not be, you need to figure out in advance how to disable Wi-Fi on the router and why it may be needed.

Disable Wi-Fi - is often used to restrict access to wireless Internet.

General information on the trip Wi-Fi on the router

Some people face the need to disable Wi-Fi on the router installed in the house. Most often, users are trying to disable the wireless connection to the Internet due to the fact that they do not use them. However, there are other reasons. For example, some are disabled Wi-Fi only for the night so that during sleeping light from the indicators during sleep.

Additional Information! It is recommended to turn off the router along with Wi-Fi connected during bad weather conditions.

If the device will work during a thunderstorm, it may fail. When the inspection voltage jumps can be started with a network cable, due to which the router can break.

Wi-Fi shutdown methods

Before disconnecting Wi-Fi, you must familiarize yourself with the main shutdown methods. Stop the work of Wi-Fi and the distribution of the Internet can be three ways.

How to deactivate wi-fi module mechanically

Wi-Fi shutdown button - Have many modern routers models

The simplest method is turned off on the Wi-Fi router - use the shutdown button, which is located on most modern router models. It is possible to find it with the help of a characteristic signature located below. Depending on the device model used, this button may be signed as "on / off" or "on / off".

There are cases when the router does not have a special button to turn off. In such situations, you can simply disconnect the router power cable from the outlet. You can also turn off the Internet cable from the device.

The above methods are suitable only for people who want to completely disable the Internet in the house. However, sometimes it is necessary to make the router worked, and Wi-Fi has been disabled. To turn off only it, you will have to use other ways.

For reference! On some device models there is a special button that is only responsible for the wireless network. If you click on it, Wi-Fi will turn off.

Remote shutdown Wi-Fi

Remote shutdown Wi-Fi - is carried out through the router settings

Not all models of routers are equipped with special buttons in order to disable Wi-Fi for a while. For example, in most budget devices there are no such buttons and therefore you have to turn off the connection by other methods.

Some users use a remote way to turn off Wi-Fi. To pause the work of the Internet in this way, you have to enter the router control panel and simply turn off in the Wi-Fi settings. You can do this with the help of a personal computer, a laptop and even a cell phone connected to the router.

Additional Information! You should not use the remote way if all devices are connected to the wireless router. If you turn off Wi-Fi, you can only turn it on the network cable.

How to disable Wi-Fi through the filtering setting by the MAC address

There are cases when people need to disable a specific device from the wireless network. It can be a smartphone, laptop or TV. To do this, you can use the filtering feature of the connected devices by their MAC address.

The process of shutdown in this way consists of several consecutive stages:

  1. Log in to the router control panel. To do this, enter IP 192.168.0.1 in the address bar of the browser.
  2. Go to the settings menu. Here you can filter and block connected devices by their MAC address.
  3. Enter mas to block access to Wi-Fi. To find out the MAC address, you can use the special utility Wireless Network Watcher. With it, you can familiarize yourself with the list of all devices that are connected to the network.

How to turn off WiFay on routers of different firms

The features of the Wi-Fi shutdown largely depend on the company used by the router.

TP-LINK.

Green TP-LINK menu design - found in most old models

Many people in apartments have routers from the TP-LINK manufacturer. Before turning off Wi-Fi on a router from this company, you must familiarize yourself with the main features of the wireless network.

The devices with the new version of the firmware turning off the network is carried out in the "Advanced Parameters" section. Here there is an sub-item with the connection settings in which you want to remove the box next to the "Enable Wireless Network" string.

In the old version of the interface, the disconnection process is slightly different. You need to go to the "Selecting Frequency" submenu and remove all available checkboxes there. After that, Wi-Fi will stop working completely and it will not be possible to connect to it.

Important! If used in the TP-LINK router, there is a special button to turn off the wireless connection, it is better to use it and not to enter the device settings.

ASUS

In ASUS models, basic settings are in the "Wireless Network" submenu.

ASUS is a well-known company, which during its existence managed to establish itself as a manufacturer of high-quality electronics. In the past few years, the firm began to produce routers to organize a wireless network in the apartment.

Dear models of routers are released with Wi-Fi shutdown button. However, in some models it is missing and you have to turn off the network remotely.

To do this, with the help of a PC with Windows OK, go to the device settings and go to the "Wireless Network" submenu. Here there is an inscription "Include a radio module", in front of which you need to remove a tick. After that, Wi-Fi will not work.

D-Link

Most D-Link models are not equipped with a special button to turn off Wi-Fi and therefore mechanically disabled from the network will not work. You have to go to the router settings to manually restrict access to the Internet.

To enter the router parameters will have to enter the IP address 192.168.0.1 in the browser. Then you need to go to the "Basic Settings" section and find it in it "Enable Wireless Network".

If the menu in English, this parameter will be called "Enable Wireless". After removing the tick opposite it, no device will be able to connect to Wi-Fi.

Zyxel

ZyXEL produces fairly high-quality routers that in many parameters are superior to devices from other manufacturers. Most models are equipped with the Wi-Fi off button and therefore it is not necessary to enter the router parameters.

Disable the network using the button simply simple. It is easy to press it and hold for 2-3 seconds. After that, the Wi-Fi indicator must stop burning.

Additional Information! If there are no buttons, you will have to go to the router parameters. There is a special section "Access point", opposite which a check mark is installed to enable and turn off access to the wireless Internet.

Router flashing - will help eliminate most of the problems arising in the device setup process

Possible problems and their solution

Allocate several common problems faced by people who want to limit access to Wi-Fi:

  • Fault Buttons. There are cases when the off button Wi-Fi does not work. In such situations, only one output is to use the router settings.
  • Problems in the work of the firmware. Sometimes due to bugs in the firmware, you cannot turn off the wireless network. To get rid of the problem, the device will have to flash.
  • No settings responsible for turning off Wi-Fi. In this case you have to turn off the router from the network card or socket.

Sometimes people need to turn off Wi-Fi so that no one can connect to him. Before this is recommended to familiarize yourself with how to limit access to the Internet in various models of routers.
