Disconnecting a device

Disconnecting a device

I am trying to remove a device that is connected to my wifi. It says however that I need to disconnect it from my network before it will allow me to 'forget' it. How do I disconnect it from my network? I can't seem to locate the 'button' to do that. I'm not trying to logout of a device like a phone or laptop. I'm talking about disconnecting devices that have logged into my home network somehow, and are active, but don't belong to me. I get a notification that a new device has joined my network, but I can't figure out how to disconnect it.

I've never tried this - go to your wifi device and make it forget the wifi ssid then try to change it in xFi.
