How do I disable the wireless modem. I just got off the phone with Exede and they say I can't do it! However when I read through this forum I see people saying "turn off the wireless modem". I have tested speeds, the wireless modem is much slower than a direct connection and my external wireless router. Any help would be appreciated.

This does NOT turn off the wifi.  It just disables the SSID broadcast.

I'm not being serious here but the only way to stop an exede wifi modem from transmitting a wifi signal is to wrap it in aluminum foil or unplug it.

There several of features I would like to see in the next generation of wifi modem.

1. A software switch to turn of wifi radio.

2. A switch to place the exede wifi modem in "Bridge" mode.

3. A WAN port so we can use a customer supplied router.

4. The ability to manage MAC addresses on the network.
