Hey Ashton_3, you probably would be better posting that question again as a new thread reather than tacking it onto the end of one from 8 years ago. Post your question, with as much information as possible, to the mobile and wearables forum.
Sorry, that's not what I should be doing. On the basic wireless tab I think I should be changing from Mixed to Disabled on thepull down menu in the enclosed screenshot. This is for 2.4GHz settings. There doesn't appear to configuration for 5GHZ.
Thanks for that. I managed to get in okay. Presumably I merely disable SSID Broadcast on the two Wireless tabs I show screen shots for. That should remove the WiFi signal but leave me able to access the internet via LAN cables and homeplugs. Am I right?
Thanks, this is helpful. The system was setup by the Satellite people so I've no idea what was involved.
we usually point a web browser at the router, log in and configure.
Can you clarify what this means exactly? First, do I have to plug my wife's laptop directly into the router or can I access it through the homeplug system? Second, what webpage do I need to access? Third, I'm not aware of any log in information I've been given. Also do I need to download any software?
Thanks for your patience with a complete novice when it comes to networks.
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.
If this is the usual iPhone can't connect to your router question, Apple iPhones can forget connections, I mean you use the menu in the setup of the WiFi to forget the old connection and then connect again.
If your name and password fail then on your PC/Apple login to your router to see what the router password is.
But here's where it gets murky. You asked about the name and password. So take some time to clear up what the issues are.
