Here are the steps in disabling the wireless connection on your DLink DIR300:

  • Go to your router’s web page. If you don’t know how, begin on the Start Menu on your desktop > Run > Type ‘cmd’. A black window will pop up displaying some information. Type in ‘ipconfig’ and then press Enter.

  • Now, there would some information and numbers on your screen. Look for something like default gateway or a set of numbers somehow similar to this: 192.168.1.1

  • Copy that address and paste it into your web browser (Mozilla Firefox, IE or Google Chrome) and then Enter. Now this should take you to your router’s webpage.

  • You need to log into your router with the admin name and password. On the left-hand side, you will see a list of links – Internet, Wireless Settings and Network Settings. Choose Wireless.

  • Now you should be on the Wireless Settings Page. Look for the Enable Wireless Box, UN-check it. That's all you need to do, do not change the other settings or it might cause problems just in case you might want to switch back to WiFi again. If the router wants to restart, allow it.

I found a useful emulator on the DLink Support Page that can be used as a guide.
