I set up a wireless network at home using a Belkin router, and I'm wondering if I can disable the wireless connection using my laptop while I'm away from home, without the need to be at home.

I know that I can do this while I'm at home - or in the wireless range - by logging into Belkin webpage and use the IP address, but I want to do this after I leave home.

Assuming the "Belkin" in question is a router, have you checked the options to see if it allows you to open the management web interface to the Internet side? Many routers have that as an option. Perhaps include a model number and what you've tried already, to help clarify where your problem lies in trying to accomplish this. –  techie007 May 17 '12 at 0:30
    
@techie007: I'm trying to follow the steps here www1.belkin.com/support/article/… but the page in the first step is not opened! (I'm out of home now) –  Kim May 17 '12 at 0:42

@Kim You have to do that while still connected to your home network. You cannot enable remote management remotely. –  Indrek May 17 '12 at 0:46
    
@Indrek: So you mean to enable the remote management I should be at home, after that I can do the disconnection while I'm out of home without the need to be at home! –  Kim May 17 '12 at 0:48
    
@Kim Yes, that's what I meant. –  Indrek May 17 '12 at 0:50
