Deactivate Gateway Router

June 26, 2019

You can turn off the router portion of your GCI Wi-Fi modem if you plan to use a different router. This will prevent the GCI Wi-Fi modem from sending out Wi-Fi and allow a router of your choosing to do that job. Once this is done the GCI Wi-Fi modem will no longer broadcast Wi-Fi and you will no longer have the ability to access it from the IP address from a web browser. If you change your mind later, no problem, just give GCI Tech Support a call and we can help you turn it back on.

  • Connect directly to your gateway via an Ethernet cable or wirelessly via your Wi-Fi
  • Open a web browser and visit
  • Sign in using the following credentials
    • Username: cusadmin
    • Password: (your Wi-Fi network password)
  • Navigate to ‘Basic’ then select ‘Gateway Function’
  • Under “Residential Gateway Function” select “Disabled” and click “Save
  • It will ask you to confirm your choice by clicking “OK” then your modem will reboot
