    Hi all - does anyone know if you can turn of the wifi radio on the airport base station and still have it operate as an ethernet switch if you so desire?
    Maybe through the airport utility?

    Strange question, I know..... Don't ask...

    Thanks for your help.

    So if you have a wireless network set-up and toggle it off and then later toggle it back on, do you have to re-setup the wireless network or will it remember how you had it setup before ie. Network name, password etc..?

    Other people have answered yes by showing the option to switch it Off in the AirPort Utility. But if you use a Wifi scanner you will discover the radios are left turned on. I would call that a bug.
