I have a R7000 and I need to disable the front buttons. Issue is I have a 2 year old who loves lite up buttons and he turns of the wifi multiple times a day. Very frustrating.

The next couple times you catch your 2 year old touching or coming near the buttons, slap the top of his hand. He will quickly learn.
Mine did.

I must be lucky. No issues with my 2-year-old. Not yet at least. Smile

Didn't start until around 2 and 2 months. He's actually almost 2 and a half now. He probably finds it funny because of my reaction lol

Services->SES / AOSS / EZ-SETUP / WPS Button

Allows you to turn turn off radio button feature.

Services->USB->Use SES Button to remove drives

Allows you to turn off the second button on the R7000.

Management->Reset Button

You can turn off reset button feature. But I don't think he manages to press that one yet and I would not turn that off, because reset might get important:-)

Why don't you just Wall-Mount your R7000? All you need is two screws, a screwdriver and a ruler / tapeline.

Then he wont reach it anyway which is probably a better idea then just disabling the Buttons.

Just be sure to put the Power Cable high as well and you're save - or better said your kid is save. Smile

Uh oh, I just checked and both are already disabled, yet the button still turns off my wifi? It's one of the front 2 he hits.
