I was recently required by comcast to upgrade their supplied Arris TM722G to a Cisco DPC3941T and ARRIS TG1682G (both look and function identically). I upgraded twice because of a wifi problem, read on:
I've had my own router for wifi for a long time and need to use "bridge mode" for the CM. I do not want any wifi from the CM, but I get it no matter what. The problem is not matter what combinations of settings I try on either CM...
.... both CMs present 5 "hidden" SSIDs, full power:
Here is my challenge / request to you: If you have one of these cable modems in bridge mode, and expect wifi to be off, can you use a wifi analyzer type tool and see if you are getting ~5 hidden SSIDs with Mac addresses that match your CMs hardware? (Android app: Wifi Analyzer, Windows 10 app: Wifi Analyzer)
Or if you have a solution I would love to have it. Again, all combinations of turning off 2.4 and 5 ghz radios and Bridge mode tried
Has anyone found anything that works?
