    Hi, the first of all thank you for this great firmware. Yesterday I bought a AC66U_B1 and I don't know how to turn off|on wifi with WPS button. It is possible?
    Thanks

    with WPS button you activate temporarily WPS-connection (self establish Wifi to a client).
    there is no WiFi button as you can easily see in your manual ...

    Under Advanced Settings->Administration->System->Misc is the WPS button behavior setting (controls whether WPS or Radio is toggled). I believe that is what OP is looking for.
    Disclaimer: This is on N66U with 380.70, I don't know if it is present on other versions.

    The option is only available on the older MIPS based routers like the N66. Not available on any of the ARM routers.

    I was using Merlin 380.70 and this option was available. Just upgraded to the new platform from ASUS 382_50702. Lost some Merlin features and gained some new functionally. I was surprised that ASUS moved the N66U into the new platform!
