Home wireless routers with on/off switch for radio?

Would like to know about some recent, cheap consumer models with the ability to easily switch radio on/off!
(Radiation, anyone ;)

Of course the devices should also have RJ45 connections.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

draytek vigor2820 and vigor2110 do this as well


they wrote, that all "n"-models have that feature
Good idea deibel.  If you can get by with 802.11g speed, go with the Linksys.  I generally prefer Linksys over Netgear.
i made some thoughts concerning your goals with that button.

do you fear the radiation?
do you have mobile phones?
does your neighbour have mobile phones?
do you have an AC-alarm-clock on your bed-table?

all these things radiate.

if you want to reduce power-comsuption, it is even better to switch off the whole router.
that might save you araound 20€ per year with german electricity tariff

if your ussue is about security:
ok, switch off is really secure!

im not going to tell, that you dont need, what you are asking for,
but think about it
My NetComm 3G18Wn has the switch.
do you need futher information?
