1) Only ice-cream can be eaten using a spoon
2) Ice-cream can only be eaten using a spoon
3) Ice-cream can be eaten using only a spoon
4) Ice-cream can be only eaten using a spoon - meaning you can’t do anything else to the ice-cream with a spoon.

No 4 is the construction used by the OP: he apparently wanted a router that could be only configured and maintained using the wireless i.e. nothing else could be done using the wireless such as accessing the internet.

The grammar was clearly wrong, and it was clear from the first post what he meant (No 3)

Seems to me some posters however tried to be clever and pedantic and expose the grammatical blunder, but they failed in comprehension of English, by mistakenly thinking he had used the construction No 2

If it still bothers you, just move ‘solely’ along to the right 4 places and go to bed like any normal person.

As far I can see your 2) = 4). It's just the adverb is positioned slightly differently within the compound verb.

However the OP originally posed his Q as:
In reply to a post by bantoi:
Something where I won't need to use the serial or ethernet cable to connect to in order to get the access to the modem to set it up.
It all revolves around the use of 'need' or more precisely 'won't need'. You don't need to use Ethernet to configure a router, but you could do if you want

It is a necessary condition but not a sufficient condition.

A router is configurable w/out using Ethernet but to be certain of configuring it you need to use something else, usually wireless.
