Windows 7: How to disable WiFi startup during Windows loading?

Well, reading what you post, it seems that, same as me, radioenable parameter controls the wifi signal enabling... may be you driver version, but it seems that your wifi is enabled during even startup... windows, when loading, loads the primary drivers (VGA, sound, networking...) so it enables that by default... your aoly chance is what you are currently doing, disabling radioenable end then enabling hat again when neccesary... maybe an script for that can help you so when you need your wifi, you patch registry again to enable the radio thing, then log off-on and connect, that is what I do when I work on LAN networks (very rare BTW, most of the times I have my wifi enabled...)

Don't worry too much about wifi being active during startup (before desktop is shown), the device is working, but unless the OS is loaded fully, it cannot connect or receive connections by itself... so it even doesn't waste battery energy...

See ya!!!

Okey, thanks for your reply, I'll solve somehow with this radioEnable entry.

But don't you know what to do with that indicator? I mean that it's still orange (not blue, as it should) when connected to network...

try with the gpioledcustom value... it' 3 by default... try changing it by 1 or 4... unfortunately i'm on research of this feature since is one of the things I need to cnfigure on my WiFi also (the indicator is always on, even when detecting traffic XD)

Whenever you change that value, first, do a backup, then change the value and then disable and reenable everytime you change the value and see if it results...

I hope someone could help on this one, is interesting for me too

See ya!!!

Well, all possible settings of these values are actually written in the .inf file of the driver, I would say..
The values that can affect it are these, I suppose:
Code:
gpioFunc0ActHi
gpioFunc1ActHi
gpioLedCustom
gpioPinFunc0
gpioPinFunc1
You can search them in that .inf file, but unfortunately none of these combinations worked for me...
Also found on this blog in comments, that blue light should appear after setting -
Code:
"gpioPinFunc0"="3"
"gpioFunc0ActHi"="0"
But I have in registry just gpioLedCustom and gpioPinFunc0 entries and after adding gpioFunc0ActHi there was no more light at all.
But when I'm thinking about it, I'm not that sure, whether I've ever had there a blue light I was checking it on youtube, seeing a few videos with my notebook model and there was always just an orange... Maybe I'm wrong.

THat keys may give you functionality with that... but at this time I'm still unsure... maybe if you change gpioledacthi to 1 or 3...

I hope that someone that is really involved on this could help here... I tried to find as many onfo for this as posible, but no one clarifies how to use that parameters...

SEe ya!!

Hi Sir Andre02, have you resolved this issue yet? I came across this site from Googling on how to disable Atheros WiFi by default on Windows startup. I was just irritated with the auto wireless on during startup. I tried to play around the regedit as suggested here but no success then decided to try other way around:

Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Power Options\Edit Plan Settings then click the 'change advanced power settings'. Now find the 'Wireless Adapter Settings and click the "plus" button to uncollapse the settings. Set the Power Saving Mode to Maximum Power Saving (On battery and Plugged in).

Works on me. No more auto WiFi turn on.

Hope it helps.

Right click and proprties for your wifi adaptor, click "advance" tab, choose "EnableAdaptivity" and change option as "Disable". Take a try this if you must disable/enable your wifi card to connect network on every start of windows.
