Can the Orbi wireless antenna be turned off?

I'm wondering if we can connect a computer to the Orbi sattellite via ethernet cable and turn off the wifi antenna?  If so, how do we do this?

 

Thanks.

The RBS wifi isn't designed to be turned off, even while ethernet connected. Thats AP mode for ethernet connected RBS.

There is probably a reason behind this question.  Knowing the reason may help people respond to what you are trying to accomplish.  Just in general, few customers deliberately purchase a WiFi product and then want to make it not perform WiFi.

I love my Orbi.
