Turning off the wireless component of a Router
My June newsletter posted incomplete info about turning off your Wi-Fi router (until you get hard-wired Internet access). Barb Payne sent the following correction:
Type in 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1, then hit enter. This'll take you to your modem router. Give your password. At "wireless set up," you'll have the choice to enable or disable. You can restore Wi-Fi the same way. If one of these sets of numbers don't work, phone your Internet service provider and ask, "What URL do I use to access my router settings online? If you use a wireless router that is not provided by your Internet service provider, the correct set of numbers for turning it off should be provided by your router's manufacturer.
