remote WIFI shutoff

Is there a way to remotely turn off all WIFI access with the MR60? With my old Linksys router I could turn it off any time with the phone app.

Hello rbmi,

 

The MR60 currently does not support this feature.

I know the MR60 doesn't support this. It should be added.

Re: remote WIFI shutoff

Switching WiFi on/off on a standalone router is a cake. 

 

On a system depending on WiFi connections (to the satellites) it's becoming a much more complex - if really switching WiFi off ... how do you expect  it to ever switch it on again?

  1. Connect your Linksys router to an electrical outlet using the power adapter or power cord.
  2. Press thePower button on the Linksys router and wait until it becomes ready for the connection.
  3. Connect the Linksys router to your PC using a standard Ethernet.
