How to Manually Disable Wifi When Connected via Ethernet

Introduction

The WiFi module of your Lattice is active at all times by default, even when connected via Ethernet. If you will be using the Lattice1 with cable connection only and don't want the device to emit additional RF radiation, you can manually disable the WiFi module through SSH.
Please make 100% sure you are connected via Ethernet first as the only way to revert this if you can't communicate with the Lattice1 through cable is by resetting the device's router.
Turning the WiFi module off requires you to SSH into your Lattice1 - if you're new to this, here's a guide:
