in p.addParameter(
"wifi up",
"echo"....)

That's what I would try anyway. Why did you disable your wifi in the first place?

no, it wont work as it clearly overwrites the wifi utility with /dev/null

see if there is a /jffs/ directory. this directory contains every changed file, if you remove files from it, it will restore them to the defaults on the next boot.

by reading the script, it has mangled the wifi binary (/sbin/wifi) and the script to reset the system to the defaults (/lib/firstboot/20_reset_clear_jffs), remove them from /jffs/.

These commands will do it and reboot the device:

rm /jffs/sbin/wifi
rm /jffs/lib/firstboot/20_reset_clear_jffs
reboot

If you don't have a shell on the device, you can try to wrap the commands in the above script, like this:

Process p;
p.begin("sh");
p.addParameter("-c");
p.addParameter("rm /jffs/sbin/wifi /jffs/lib/firstboot/20_reset_clear_jffs; reboot;");

Please let me know if there's anyway to turn off the Arduino Yun WiFi.
I need to do this under the Arduino IDE with windows 7 (not LINUX).
After trying all suggestions from different posts/forums.
None worked as after 5 minutes the WiFi is enabled again.
None of these suggestions worked:

Please advise which forum I can ask this on, etc.
Your advise is greatly appreciated.
