ARRIS TG1682G - Prefer Private Connection Option

Hi, at http://10.0.0.1/connected_devices_computers.php after the recent firmware upgrades an option called "Prefer Private Connection" popped up on that page. Does anyone know the intention of that option? Toggling it just gives a please wait screen for 1-2 seconds then goes away and does nothing else.

Hi, jweaver0312 - If this feature is turned on it will force your devices to connect to your private home network instead of xfinitywifi hotspot.
