Re: Disable Wifi

Unfortunately the general public doesn't learn anything using that method. That's not what a public help forum is all about.. My $.02.

Re: Disable Wifi

You must be a current employee if you feel that this topic is in any way "proprietary"....

Dee, one needs to be very careful about working out issues via private message.

 

shuck1 might have his "hand in the mix" but that does not guarantee he knows what he is talking about.

 

By keeping everything out in the open if there is anything incorrect someone else can refute the incorrect statements.  This makes it less likely for things to go wrong when trying things to fix issues.

 

Here in the forum people prove themselves by providing information that will benefit not only you but others.

 

*side note* Comcast employees must be approved by the forum administrators before they can post in the forum. Employees will have their names in RED. If someone claiming to be an employee asks for personal information/account details and that someone does not have his/her name in RED ignore the request.  There is no way to be sure the person is indeed an employee.

Re: Disable Wifi

The decision is up to Dee. I just presented the downside to doing it via private message.

Other than her password, what about this process should not be public?

 

And what do you mean by "have a hand in the mix"? You seem to be intentionally evasive about this.

Re: Disable Wifi

Hello Group,

 

I also need information on how to disable the Wifi on Arris TC862.

 

Please either post or send me a Private Message.

 

The Reason? 

 

I dont want to subject my family to this strong WiFi signal all night long as we sleep (especially when nobody is utilizing the wiFi). 

 

It is well documented that leaving WiFi on 24/7 is a waste of electricity and not good for the human brain. 

 

I wish this router had a button on the outside (like my old NETGEAR router did) that disables the WiFi

Okey dokey.  Whaetver your reasons (questionable or not), you cannot disable the wifi on the TG862 gateway yourself.  Comcast in their infinite wisdom has chosen not to provide access to that function in their very crappy firmware. So you have three choices.

 

1. Unplug the gateway at night.

2. Have it placed in bridge mode (which disables the router and wireless functions) by the support folks at 800-363-2416 and use your own wireless router where you CAN turn off the wifi as desired.

3. Get rid of the gateway and replace with a cable modem/ETMA and your own wireless router as in #2.

Re: Disable Wifi

Please elaborate.  How do I determine the password of the day?  When I go to the advanced tab,

http://192.168.100.1/cgi-bin/adv_pwd_cgi

I get the error

NET-DK/1.0 Error: 401 Unauthorized

Re: Disable Wifi

For one to log into ARRIS TG 862 you need to login at 10.0.0.1. user name is admin and the password should be password. Two to diasble wirelss you must call comcast tech support, they are the only ones that can turn of the wifi.
