Router administration over wireless connection - security breach

Please add a setting to the router admin console that allows disabling connection to the router administration interface via wireless connections. If the setting is checked the router should reject all connections to the admin console via WiFi. That is it should be possible to administer router only via hard wired connections.

Most of the modern routers support that feature; example: Linksys E3000 and above.

Wifi should be fairly secure if setup properly. You also have your admin account that would need to be cracked. Now if someone was to make a good connection to your internal network, I would be more concerned with other items. But you do get my vote.:smileywink:
