Turn off wireless

I would like to turn off the wireless and just use a separate wireless router I have connected to the modem/router. How can I disable the wireless and still have modem connectivity?

Put the gateway in Bridge Mode.

Putting in bridge mode doesn’t completely turn off WiFi. It seems to “hide” it but still on.

If there is no SSID, then it can't be accessed.
