There is no way to turn it off in a certain room, but your modem has a password, so be selective as to who you give it to or change it then be selective about who you give it to.

I am guessing you want to turn it off at certain hours of the day possibly for a child that wants to stay up late. That would require a wired system. Or simply add a second modem and then you would have the opportunity to switch the guest modem at certain hours of the day. There is no reason each member of the family couldn't have their own router with their own password.

That would be short of installing a Faraday cage surrounding the room which is not really pratical.

I don't know about the Xfinity router, but my Netgear home wireless router offers several options to selectively filter traffic on a schedule.

You can block websites or services (i.e. http/https) on a schedule, and can also exempt certain trusted IPs. This can be used to selectively block most internet access for some devices in the household at certain times (i.e. if you are trying to manage a child's internet usage).

You can also set up a second wireless router downstream of the main router, and block all access during selected times. Then, only grant internet access through this second router to the parties you want to block at times.

Another approach is to use add-on software on the client devices. For example, I'm using SoftPerfect's NetWorx software to limit total bandwidth usage for a family member that is using up too much bandwidth. This software also offers time-based blocking as well as bandwidth-based blocking.
