Cannot disable private wifi connections

Hello - I have two comcast routers, each providing both 2.4GHz and 5GHz private wifi networks.


So I have a total of *four* private wifi network SSIDs available from my routers.


I normally do not want private wifi enabled; I enable it on-demand for specific projects.


When I disable either private wifi (2.4GHz or 5GHz) on the local router web admin page, the wifi interfaces show up as disabled.


But...the SSID is still broadcast *and* - gulp! - I'm can actually connect to any of the private wifi networks.


This morning, I just went into and verified that the private wifi networks show up as "off".


Too bad that my local device just happily connected to one of these "disabled" wifi networks.


Ugh, what a disaster.
