Raspberry Pi (rpi) – Disable WiFi and/or Bluetooth

Open /boot/config.txt and add to the end of the file:

# disable wifi
dtoverlay=pi3-disable-wifi

# disable bt
dtoverlay=pi3-disable-bt

Reboot!

Alternatively you can blacklist kernel modules for wifi and/or bluetooth

Create /etc/modprobe.d/raspi-blacklist.conf and copy this:

## wifi
blacklist brcmfmac
blacklist brcmutil

## bt
blacklist btbcm
blacklist hci_uart

Reboot!
