You don't need to "turn off" the modem other than disconnecting it from the coax cable and the power supply.

Simply install your new gateway, then connect your computer to it, and navigate to http://www.xfinity.com/activate , http://internet.xfinity.com, or call (800)- COMCAST. The old modem will be deactivated once the new gateway is activated.
