Some wireless routers have a function to turn off (ie outside) the radio radio. Check your owner's manual for help. That said, if your wireless network is properly secured leave Wireless radio will pose a safety risk at all. My wireless network is encrypted with WPA-PSK (AES) and a 63-character random ASCII key and it allow the disabling of wireless and the best is to change the SSID, disable broadcast, filter the MAC, and enable WPA or WEP.

Adapters in many routers and some more advanced settings of the options for controlling the transmission power of Wi-Fi radios. If your router has no wireless function off, change the transfer (often called Tx)power to 0 can actually turn off Wi-Fi. Administrators most often use this option to adjust your wireless network to reduce interference and improve range.
