    I have an environment where the Byte Plus would be a good fit but it should not connect to the network. In other words, I need a stand-alone device and I don’t want anyone to be able to connect to our wireless network on this device. Since the user will be an admin, there isn’t much point in disabling the WLAN hardware in Device Manager – they can just turn it back on. But if the antenna were to be removed, the signal strength would be so poor that they’d never get a good enough signal to connect to the network (I have seen this with other wifi-enabled devices). So, is it possible for me to safely remove the antenna without damaging it to accomplish this goal? Thanks.

    Hello Ferratho,

    Thank you for using the Azulle forums. Yes, the antenna can be removed and by doing it will affect the signal reception. There are also other ways to make the Wi-Fi useless without having the unit opened. For example, you can make a rule in your firewall to drop any connection or you can set up your server to isolate the Byte’s MAC from the rest of the network.

    However even when your idea is possible, it will not guarantee the safety of your device. If the BP has open access to the admin user, anyone can scape any local restriction and if you plant it in the server, it can always be avoided
    by using a Wi-Fi USB adapter.

    It doesn’t mean that it can be done. All those steps plus a secure Wi-Fi can help you to accomplish your goal.

    Best regards
