    It seems if an ethernet cable is attached, the R2 will establish two connections, one via wifi and another via wired. That results in my DHCP server giving out two IP addresses, which I do not want. Is there a way to disable wireless via the Robo menus, or even via octoprint? or must I ssh in and dig into Raspberry Pi OS?

    Just do not give it valid credentials for the wireless and you should be good.
    It has to 'know' the network name and login info... wipe that out and it is stuck with the Ethernet.
