Hi @Alistewey 

 

Are you looking to switch off the wifi totally from your NowTV Hub Router or just looking to hook up an Ethernet cable between the Hub Router and your nowtv streaming box and still use the wifi from the Router for other devices like your smartphone, tablet etc ?

Hi @Alistewey 

 

See if the suggestions on this linked thread below works for disabling the wifi on your NowTV Hub Router.

If you get stuck and need to put the Router back to its original default setting, then hold the reset button on the back of the NowTV  Router for about 15 seconds.

I don’t understand why you want to turn the WiFi off?

 

Ethernet versus WiFi in your home isn’t an either/or thing; if you wire your black box to the Hub, and set that to use the Ethernet, you achieve your aim, while still having WiFi for - say - your mobile phone while at home.

 

You don’t want to see your mobile bill skyrocket!

Hey Roy

 

You know, while reading your question to @Alistewey  it occurred to me that I have up to 13 devices connected to my router via wi-fi but only have three via Ethernet.

 

I don't believe my usage is anyway out of the ordinary especially as wi-fi usage has now become as crucial as electricity or gas in the home.  And so, like you, do not understand why anyone would want to switch off their wi-fi.

 

However, I guess we could speculate from now until the cows come home, unless @Alistewey would like to enlighten us.
