How to disable Horizon Wifi after Connect Box installation

Hello

 

I have installed my new Connect Box which is now providing the internet along with the Horzon box which provides the TV (as per other questions on the forum, it would have been nice if Cablecom let us know this intended setup from the start but anyway...)

 

The only issue is that the Horizon box is still transmitting the old 'dead' wifi signals which are at best an inconvenience but at worst congestion of wifi signals in my house.

 

How can I disable these 'dead' wifi signals coming from the Horizon box?  There is a Q&A on this site referring to the use of qwlogin.net to adjust the settings but this directs to an error message 'Your requested domain is either in installation process, or parked on this site' (I think it's because the Horizon box is no longer connected to the internet).

 

Thanks

Hi @Uranium235,

 

Try this on your browser:

 

  • Enter the IP address 192.168.192.1
  • User and password are both admin

 

You should have access to the settings with that 

 

Kind regards,

Michael

Re : How to disable Horizon Wifi after Connect Box installation

Brilliant, it worked.  Thanks very much.

 

Now a general question: I tried moving my connect box from my living room to the study in order to have a direct Ethernet connection to my PC but it didn't work (green symbols just kept flashing on the modem).  Is it 'normal' that only one outlet in the house would be active to feed the Internet?

 

It's not big issue because it's working OK now but would like to experiment with this.

 

Thanks

Good evening @Uranium235,

 

I'm glad that it worked 

 

You have two outlet at home? Are they the same?

I think the Connect Box had been activated for only one outlet. But I am not totally sure about it. I didn't find any information about it.

 

Regards,

Michael
