How to disable wifi or wireless on Vizio E70u-D3

I need to be able to disable the wifi on my Vizio E70u-D3. Whether that is through a menu setting or by physically breaking the wireless piece on the inside. I just want it to be a monitor. I don't want it broadcasting its wifi signal.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I have tried to disable wifi radio on my Vizio tv by connected it with a CAT 5 cable direct to my router but it didn't stop the wifi from broadcasting. Anyone's got a solution?

This forum entry on another site tells how but sadly it requires a working cat 5 (wired) network connection to disable the wifi. kind of silly if you ask me and I have a vizio tv too!

If you unscrew all the screws on the back, take off the plastic back covering, you will find one 2.5 Ghz wifi, one 5 Ghz wifi and one Bluetooth antenna (two gray and one black) wires going to the wifi/BT chip towards the very right side (when looking a the TV from behind). You can easily remove the antennas from the chip with your fingernails which greatly reduces the wifi/BT capability (doesn't completely stop it, but renders it pretty worthless).

Takes about 5 minutes.
