Disable Public WiFi Hotspot on Cisco Modem

Hello,

 

I have a Cisco modem DPC3941B and I'm attempting to disable the public WiFi hotspot to reduce interference on my actual APs.  After much searching and following istructions here (https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/disable-xfinity-wifi-home-hotspot) this doesn't seem to be an option on my account (see below).  Any idea how I can disable this thing?  Thanks!

Re: Disable Public WiFi Hotspot on Cisco Modem

Following-up - I spoke with Joseph, but unfortunately wasn't able to get this resolved.  I'm wanting to disable the "XFINITY" and 'xfinitywifi' hotspots broadcasting out of my modem.  They're causing interference with my actual APs because they keep jumping to the same channels.  I don't have the ability to do this myself so I'd really appreciate someone at Comcast's help.

 

Thanks!
