When I issue the "wl radio off" command while logged into my router through ssh, the Status/Sys-Info page on the router's web interface says 1. "Radio: Radio is Off" but the same page still shows "Network: G-Only", and "TX Power: 1mW". Also, when I go to the Wireless/Basic Settings page it still says "G-Only" under Wireless Network Mode instead of "Disabled".

If I choose "Disabled" for Wireless Network Mode in the web interface, the Status/Sys-Info page shows 1. "Radio: Radio is Off", "Network: Disabled", and "TX Power: Radio is Off".

So my question is: does the "wl radio off" command actually turns off the power to the wifi, or just disables access to wifi (while leaving the wifi on & powered up)?

(I have a WRT54GL v1.1) Thank you.
