      Can I turn wireless off?

      I'm a Mac user and am about to move from Tiscali to UKOnline LLU, but have decided to go for Sky Max instead, and save myself some money.

      This means I can't use my Linksys router which I'm familiar with.

      When I try to sign-up via the SKY website, it says that a wireless PC *is* required, and that a wireless adaptor can be purchased at extra cost.

      Is this just a standard clause? As I understand it, I could end up with either a Netgear V1/V2 or Sagem router? Do these have any ethernet ports (ideally 4), or are they wireless only?

      Now, assuming they *do* have ethernet ports, my next question is quite a strange one. Is it possible to turn off the wireless feature? Currently I have the Linksys configured so that wireless is disabled (for health reasons).

      Thanks everyone.

      Yes you can turn off the wireless feature, and yes the routers do have ethernet ports
