I have a linksys wrt110 wireless router. Need to use it in none wireless mode for short term max security. Can this unit be setup in this manner?? I disabled the ssid but I can still see and use the wireless portion.

Every wireless router that I have seen...also has ports which can be used for wired connections.

Although I employ a wireless router, I don't have any wireless connections so I cannot accurately speak of such. I could be wrong but I believe that the native security features of the router come into play automatically with a wired connection...whereas wireless transmissions are not protected by those features. Which is why wireless transmissions require additional security measures such as WEP/WPA.

Off the top of my head I would say that wireless can be disabled. Any Linksys wireless router I have dealt with has had that ability.
Just where and how to disable it on the wrt110....I do`t know.

Here is the PDF manual for it. I poked around in it a little bit but did not see anything.

Thanks for your replies. I finally found the answer: Security Mode set to 'Disabled" and Wireless Configuration must be set to "Manuel" and Network Mode set to "Disabled".

Futher explaining. You need to log into the router with a wired connection, the ip Address for Linksys is 192.168.1.1 (if this is the primary router) enter in the user name and password. Go into your wireless internet settings and disable the wireless internet.
