R6080 - Turn Off Router

Trying to use this just to connect a couple hardwired Ethernet devices and get to them from my laptop's WiFi.

 

Box continually steps in and interrupts what I'm trying to do, complaining that there's no internet connection.

 

Big "duh". 

Bigger "duh" - can't find a way of just turning the router OFF.

Help?

Thx,

  - Chip

Thank you FURRYe38 - dug into the menus, but apparently not deep enough - that did the trick!!!

Anyone else diving into this, make sure you READ THE WHOLE THING and scroll down to where you want to set your IP address settings BEFORE you reboot the router!  (I didn't...  That was fun)

Glad you got it working. Be sure to save off a back up configuration to file for safe keeping. Saves time if a reset is needed.
