So my school has set up a ton of wireless access points and now they want me to turn off the wireless functionality of my router. I have a Netgear WNR2000 and I can't find the option to turn off the wireless.

Thank you for your help

On the left hand side, under the Advanced heading is a link labeled Wireless Settings. In that menu is a check box labeled "Enable Wireless Router Radio". Uncheck that and the wireless signal will be turned off.

A quick review of the manual shows a physical switch for the wireless (see page 5). Have you tried that?

That would be great, except I have version 1 of the router, not version 2. Unfortunately, version 1 does not have the button. – indyK1ng May 9 '10 at 3:25
Always useful to post that kind of information in the original question ;) – Cry Havok May 9 '10 at 8:41
