      Disabled skyq wireless on router but it is still transmitting and able to connect

      I have sky fibre and Have just had Sky Q installed the 2TB skyQ box is connected to the sky q router via Ethernet cable I have disabled 2.4g and 5g wireless access points via the router and have saved changes and even tried a reboot of the router

      the wireless access point check boxes are unchecked yet its still transmitting the ssid and I am able to connect to the wireless network .

      I am using a Ubiquiti Pro AC access point wired via ethernet to the router so i do not need the wireless feature of the sky Q router.

      Any suggestions appreciated

      Thanks Neil

      Found out why .Engineer menu on skyq box settings 001 enter and have disabled 2.4 and 5g network and it has stopped transmitting .I would have thought disabling wifi on router would turn it off globally but i guess the skyq box is transmitting wifi via the ethernet cable attached to the router as part of the mesh network.I did tell engineer at the time I did not want wifi as had access point already
