This puzzled me when I first saw it because I had just set up a WRT54G for my girlfriend and I thought hers had Disable as one of
those options.  I later bought a used WRT54G for myself and it also has Disable on that pull-down menu.  Just saw it recently and
remembered this old thread.  Don't know about the WRT54GC model, but the WRT54G and earlier BEFW11S4 11MHz models definitely have a
Disable option.  Best to call Linksys when a question like this comes up.  Their tech support is 24/7 and pretty good.
