Last Updated: Fri, 04 Apr 2014 > Related Articles
Customers can disable the WiFi on the Cisco DPC3825 and DPQ3925 to use with their own standalone wireless router.
You may have a standalone router that you would like to continue to use and are having problems with connecting to your router. The device may be causing a conflict because the router portion of the device is also active. You can turn off the WiFi network of the device, turning it into a modem only, and be able to use your router without an issue.
Completing this procedure disables the WiFi for the Cisco DPC3825 and DPQ3925 devices. This allows customers to use their own standalone wireless router.
Customers must be connected directly to the device to perform these changes.
