4GEE Home Router (2018) connecting to personal router

Hello,

 

I suppose that the 4GEE Home router (2018 model) has at least one ehternet cable for a wired connection? If it does, is it possible to set it up so that it's wireless broadcasting is disabled and all the traffic goes through the ethernet cable only (say to a personal router - netgear/linksys/cisco etc.. that will be the main router at home)?

It does have 1 Ethernet port which could be connected to another router. Dunno if WiFi can be disabled.

Hello there @gbdavid

 

Thanks for coming to the community.

 

Our 4GEE Home Router Help page for internet and connections may help you see what settings can be changed.

Sorry @Leanne_T but the instructions don't have much detail. They are also outdated (referring to the interface and options of the older model from 2016). I was hoping that someone that already tried to do this could reply to my post, as it is something that unfortunately is not documented yet by EE.

You'd think someone in EE could take a peek.

Hi @gbdavid

 

I've sent a message to our device team to ask if they know that it's possible.

 

I'll be back in touch once I have an answer.

 

Thanks

Hi @gbdavid

 

It should be possible to turn off WiFi.

 

Please type 192.168.1.1 into your browser. You should then be given the options to turn off Wi-fi.

 

You may have to keep one Wi-Fi channel on but, you can turn off broadcast SSID which would make the network undiscoverable.

 

Hope this helps.


Chris 🙂
