Feature request: disable wireless

It would be nice to have a way to disable wireless on the cubes. There are some situations where the customer provides their own wifi but we would still like to have a device behind the radio. With the cube forcefully belching out its own wireless beacon we can't use it in those situations. This is another situation where the AirGateway firmware was (and still is) superior to the new cubes.

@FuzzyDice, webui always has all the possible features and options to configure. You can disable radio on wireless page. Which firmware version you are using at the moment?

You can disable the wireless. I can from within UNMS for sure.

Is it also possible to switch wifi on and off scheduled? Like on from 8 to 5 Monday to Friday?

Re: Feature request: disable wireless

Do you know, is it planned to be implemented? And if yes, any idea when?

It is not currently planned to be implemented, but we'll consider it. Thanks for the suggestion.

Re: Feature request: disable wireless

Sorry to necro an older thread, but I'm VERY interested disabling the radio on a shedule. If that's not worked on or in the roadmap, is it possible to block traffic spcifically from the 2.4 radio in the firewall (preferablly between certain hours?)

I know how I can make this work with a stand alone AP and a router, but the cube would be a perfect one stop for my situation if I can find a way to have a timed block on use/connection to a specific radio.

 

Thank you,

Andrew

Re: Feature request: disable wireless

That would be really easy to do with a custom script through SSH. Oh wait.......no SSH either.

Re: Feature request: disable wireless

As mentioned in several other threads, SSH is being considered for a future release once we have addressed the current product issues.
