I just found this online:
Arris XB6 (TG3482G)
Login to XB6 admin GUI on Web by entering 10.0.0.1 in the browser address bar
Enter the admin username and password. Username: admin, Password: password
Under Connections, click on Wi-Fi
You should then see the Private WiFi Network per Radio. Click on edit next to radio 2.4Ghz
Next to Wireless Networks, click on Disable. Click on Save Settings.
Turn off the option to Broadcast network name SSID
Click on Save settings
Repeat steps 3 to 6 to disable the 5Ghz radio
Sorry, I misunderstood. I also thought that you were looking for a way to automate the process.
Would this work?
You would think so. However, if you use a mobile WiFi scanner app, you will find that the Ignite XB6 gateway will continue to have some hidden WiFi networks networks active, even after you disable WiFi using the steps outlined above.
The XB6 was also designed by Comcast to act as a home automation hub. If I am not mistaken, the XB6 has additional internal radios for controlling and interacting with IoT devices, using Bluetooth LE and Zigbee radios, and (I believe also) Thread, although I don't know whether Rogers currently has these enabled.
As far as I know, there is (currently) no way to completely disable the XB6's WiFi or any of its other other internal radios through settings. I personally do not have any safety concerns about electromagnetic radiation from the XB6 at these frequencies and power levels. However, if you do, then the only way to minimize or eliminate them is to either unplug the gateway or shield it using a Faraday cage.
I see that I have received some new firmware on my modem:

I been with Ignite for 2 years now and have never been aware of a firmware update to the modem/route or TV box. There have been posts in this forum about some added features and when I checked they were there.
Maybe this is how firmware updates for all devices should work. Good job Rogers.
