Topic: Push button support for WLAN  (Read 4141 times)

Is it possible to add a push button support to turn on/off the WLAN connection? I have seen it on Fritz boxes and I find this feature very convenient.

Thank you

Seeing as how we don't do hardware, how would we do that?  All of the firewalls I have installed, the only button is power...

Turns off wireless perfectly.  Grin

I think the OP is looking for a software "button" within m0n0wall that disables/enables wireless in a single click as opposed to the multiple clicks now required to change the state of an interface, apply the changes, and perhaps even reboot.

Google is your friend and Bob's your uncle.

I don't think he is talking about a software button, at least the FritzBox I'm forced to use (sadly) does not have such a button on it's webinterface. However, I have to admit that a row of buttons on the first page of the webinterface would be quite convenient.

By the way, just a quick reminder that the 1.8b scheduler supports turning on/off wireless e.g. during night.
