For security reasons, you may find that you want to configure a Cisco Linksys Wirelesss Router as a router without wireless.  Following are the steps to disable the wireless on a Cisco Linksys wireless router:

  1. If the router is using the default IP Address, browse to: http://192.168.1.1
  2. Login is admin.  If the admin password is unknown, you may have to reset the router to default values by holding down the reset button for 5 to 10 seconds.  If there are custom settings within the router, these values will be lost if the router is reset.
  3. If the router is reset, you would then typically login using the default username of no username and a password of admin.
  4. Click Wireless.
  5. Click Basic Wireless Settings.
  6. Select Manual.
  7. Change Network Mode to Disabled.
  8. Click Save Settings. 

I would then recommend setting the admin password to a custom password.
