My wife and I live in an area where Satellite Internet and Phone are the only option unfortunately. So our complex setup involves a modem, router and telephone adapter. My wife's health is such that she would like to remove the presence of WiFi signals in the house if possible. This isn't as ludicrous as it sounds. First, her laptop doesn't work with WiFi and my office (and desktop computer) are remote from the router so we work successfully with HomePlugs and don't actually need WiFi signals. My question is, is it possible somehow to remove the router and its WiFi signals from the system. There are three LAN cables that go into the back of the router, one from the phone adapter, one from the modem and one to the neaby HomePlug. I can't simply plug two of the cables into the modem even if that made sense, and I'm not sure it does, because the modem has only one LAN input. Thoughts please.

I have to ask why you don't configure the router's radio to "OFF." Every router I've configured over the past 2 decades has this.

You are right. There are few controls "on" the router. For control we usually point a web browser at the router, log in and configure.
