Model: Deco M5  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.6.1

I used Deco as Access Point with a Modem/Router combo from Spectrum - everything worked fine, and I had 1 WiFi network to choose from.  Now, Spectrum replaced the combo unit with a separate modem and router.  I reconnected the Deco to the new router.  Everything seems to work, but I now have 2 WiFi networks on all my devices:  the Deco  WiFi and the new router's WiFi.  Is this right?  Can you offer some config tips?  I tried rebooting the Deco, but it failed saying that it couldn't find the Deco.  Strange, because other devices say they're connected to Deco WiFi.  Thank you.

It is recommended to turn off router WiFi network, leaving just Deco to provide WiFi coverage.

Thanks - now I have to figure out how to do that!  I tried 192.168.1.1, which is the stated address for the router, but got just a Spectrum webpage direecting me their app.  No further help there.
