Disable Wifi on Raspberry Pi 3

Wed May 03, 2017 7:08 pm

Does anyone know how to disable the Wi-Fi interface on Windows 10 IoT for the Raspberry Pi 3?

I've tried the following from a command prompt, but it does not seem to work:

netsh interface set interface name="Wi-Fi" admin=DISABLED

Thanks!

Give Powershell a go

Right click on pictures and choose open in new tab to get a bigger view of them.

Run up IOT Dashboard and under Devices, Right click on your Raspberry Pi and choose Launch Powershell.

Put in the Admin password when prompted.
It can take a few seconds to connect, but when it does you should get a command prompt.

The to list your network interface type

Code: Select all

Get-Netadapter
Then to Disable the Wi-Fi interface

Code: Select all

Disable-Netadapter Wi-Fi
The do another Get to check if it is disabled.

Should stay disabled after a reboot also.

Hope this helps.

Cheers

I need also to disable the WiFi on my Rasperry Pi Model B.
Unfortunately, always Powershell hangs when I try to connect to my Raspberry Pi (S.O. 10.0.17763.107), so I am not able to try this solution.
I see two possible solutions:
1- using SSH: which commands to use in order to disable wifi ?
2- succeeding in using Powershell: why Powershell hangs ?

Thanks in advance for your help
