I now have wired network outlets throughout the house and no longer need the wireless function - which will increase security. Is there a simple way to disable only the wireless function on the D-Link DI-514? All help gratefully appreciated.
Step 1 Open your Internet browser and type the IP address of the router in the address bar. The default IP address is 192.168.0.1. At the login, enter your username (admin) and password (default password is blank).
Step 2 Click on the Advanced tab at the top of the configuration page and then click the Performance button on the left side.
Step 3 At the bottom of the Performance page, click on Disable next to the SSID Broadcast field.
Step 4 Click on Apply. Wait about 15 seconds to allow the router to save the changes and then click on Continue.

Unfortunately, Linksys can't replace or upgrade your router. What you can do is just buy a new Linksys router. The model number WRTP54GP2 has all the VOIP functions that you need, plus it has wireless function, you can go online wirelessly using your laptop.
Hi! It's ok to disable the wireless broadcast of the router however, it wont stop the router from broadcasting the wireless frequency. It will only hide itself from the people who are trying to connect to a free signal that are available.
