Pause/disable/suspend wifi remotely

Hi, is there anyway to pause my internet service remotely? I'm out of the country at the moment, and my housemate is refusing to pay his share of the internet bills. I can't really deal with him properly until I return in a week, so until then I want to disable the internet in the property until I can return to teach him a lesson. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

No, there isn’t a “backdoor” into the superhub to allow you to change the settings remotely, as this would be a huge security risk. You would have to contact customer services & see if they are willing to suspend the account.

There's nothing you can do yourself.

Your only chance is to ring customer services and ask for your account to be disconnected. But that may be difficult if you are abroad.

I am afraid this will not help you, but there is a way to get into a Hub3 remotely and then only when it’s in modem mode. It requires setting up port forwarding on your own router, but it’s certainly not advisable.
