    No.  The Bluetooth is part of that red dongle, so to disable it you can always pull it out and put it in a very secure place.

    Once GOLD is setup and configured, should the dongle be removed be stored securely?

    You can leave it there (taking out should be okay too).  If you worry about others pairing with your unit, you should take the license sticker out and store it in a secure place.

    I think from a security perspective, the Bluetooth dongle should be removed once the device has been set up. This is simply for the same reason you should rename you Access Point. It gives the attacker an idea of what hardware are you running on your network.
