How to disable WIFI on your Cox supplied Netgear Router (CG3000D)

You'll notice that if you try to login to the administrative web GUI for your Netgear Cox router there is not a tab that lets you uncheck "Enable Wireless Radio". You have to use a hidden settings page on the router to disable this setting. The URL for the page is as follows:


use the IP address of your router where it says ##ROUTERADDRESS##. This might look something like this:

On this page you will see a check box checked for "Enable Wireless Radio." Uncheck this box and hit APPLY below and your wireless will be disabled on this router and you are free to use a 3rd party wireless router of your choosing such as a ASUS RT-N66U Dual-Band Wireless-N900 Gigabit Router.

NOTE: Unchecking the "Enable SSID Broadcast" does not disable the WIFI. It only prevents the SSID from being broadcasted.
