    Hey guys! I'm off to college in a couple of days and I'm going through my checks of things. I have multiple wireless routers/access points/etc. throughout my house. I was planning on bringing my wired router to college (because my college does not allow wireless routers due to "security"... dumb, I think). However, I've been unable to find said wired router. So I'm hoping you guys can help me.
    My question is: Can any of my wireless routers act as solely a wired router and not emit any wireless signal?? Please help!
