If you need to test your broadband line without wi-fi (for example to check for wi-fi interference or to troubleshoot speed problems), please do the following (works for most users, some have custom setups):

1) Power off your wireless router (by taking out the DC supply plug from the back)
2) Take the cable out of the WAN/Internet port (usually a blue port)
3) Plug this cable into a laptop/desktop PC, wait 30 seconds
4) Test your internet speed without wi-fi
