Disable wifi on Nokia BGW320-505 modem/router
I recently had ATT fiber internet installed. I now have a BGW320-505 modem/router. I’m trying to turn off the wifi so I can connect my orbi. I followed JefferMC instructions from this forum. I set the Home SSID and Guest SSID Enable to off. When I try to save these settings I get an error…at least one SSID should be enabled on 2.4 GHz Radio.
Is there a way to get around this? Or am I missing something?
Thanks in advance.

To simpy disable the 2 GHz and the 5 GHz use the AT&T Gateway link to just disable to radios and don't forget to "Save" your changes on the page: http://192.168.2.1/cgi-bin/wconfig.ha
Note: you will the Access code from the back of the BGW320 unit.

I looked at the IP Passthrough article. Still a bit lost. My Allocation Mode is off; Passthrough Mode=DHCPS-fixed. I couldn't tell from the article what these values should be.
Appreciate more help.
