Technicolour router wifi issue?


[link to this post]
 
The wi-fi turns on automatically for some reason.
I know it was off 100% then i looked at the router and it's there flashing away.

Do you save config after disabling it?

All Connection Data ~ Some plusnet links

I've forgotten more about broadband than I care to remember.

No, this is from holding the button down on the box...now you're going to tell me it's sleep mode till something connected asks for a connection, i feel.

That is how I thought it worked - obviously I thought wrong
Try shutting it off using the web interface
Go to Router then click on WLAN: Plusnet Wireless etc, then click on Configure and uncheck it

Turned it off via the web interface, but i can turn it on via the button on the router.

Remove the router and put it under your bed?

It can't if it isn't plugged in.

Anyway, I thought the problem was that pressing the button overrides turning wireless off in the GUI. It would be quite an amazing router that could turn its wireless on for your son if it is not powered up, has the wireless turned off in the GUI and he can't get at the button.

How long is this film he's watching? tongue
How old is he?
How does it stop you sleeping?

There must be some solution!

Lol it's always plugged in
The button does override the gui.no point even opening it.

It's not a problem of him not watching it or his age (16) or stops me from sleeping he his a good lad tbh.

It's the fact the wifi gets turned on when no gui or the button pressed.
