Hi! I have an old Linksys BEFW11S4 Wireless-B Router that I would like to use as a router only. I want to turn off it's radio. I don't mean just to turn off the SSID broadcast. I want to disable its radio so that it is neither broadcasting nor receiving any signal. Maybe I missed it in the docs or on one of the setup pages, but I just can't find the answer.
Now, taking off the antennas as a means to "disable" the radio (or keep it from transmitting/receving) is not an option, as I suspect that may cause higher than normal SWR (standing wave ratio) that could damage the BEFW's radio, in case I want to use its radio in the future.
I have to say that I don't have the unit turned on at the moment, so I don't know the firmware version on it. But, is there even an option to turn off the radio on this router in any of the versions of the firmware.
Thanks in advance!
