is it okay to keep the WiFi-Link always connected, wired and powered?

I guess it's okay, sorry, maybe dumb question but better to ask :)

Yes. It is OK, but you should enable Auto-Turn Off feature in the Web interface.
Once module is turned off in this way, then it is perfectly safe.

Yes, you can just turn off Wifi on your phone.

on iphone you can configure a specific wifi to not "auto-join"
so your iphone will connect on that wifi only if you choose to

i guess there is a similar setting on android too but i don't have one to check

okay, the wifi link switches off after inactivity, is there a way to switch it on again except re-plugging the battery? I want to check the logs with my mobile but when I re-plug the battery all the logs are reset.

himm, thanks, but doesnt apply to my setup as wifi link is powered from the receiver which is difficult to access.

maybe I can later place a switch in between.

what if I dont enable Auto-Turn Off, but not connect to WiFi?

The Wifi-Link will be still transmitting, so there will be increased noise with respect to your receiver/transmitter.
In the most cases it is not a problem, but could in theory reduce tx signal.

There are also electronic switches available that can turn power on/off and can be controlled by a free channel.
