Just a thought: Your connection was working OK before you changed the modem. You didn't have problems during the previous month since Spectrum replaced your previous modem. Get another modem of the same model from Spectrum and re-register it on the network.
There's a good chance the coaxial cable from the wall to the modem or one of the connectors is defective. That should be the only cable connection that you need to change to swap modems.
That modem TC81717T is rated on our network for up to 300 https://www.timewarnercable.com/en/support/internet/topics/modems.html
Approved for Internet plans with download speeds up to 300 Mbps
After last nights power outage, I had quite a time reconfiguring all the devices I have attached to my router, switch, and modem. I was wondering if anyone uses a UPC and if so what size and how long do you think it run your modem, router, and switch?
I think you are referring to a UPS, or uninterruptible power supply, not a Universal Product Code. But you have a far bigger problem to attack and resolve. Most network devices retain their last known settings in memory when you unplug the power supply, so they can restart quickly and without manual intervention. If your equipment has to be reconfigured whenever the power goes off, something is not set up properly.
The UPS run time depends on both the size of the battery (its source of energy) and the load (the rate you consume the energy). So to buy an adequately sized UPS you need to find out how much power each of your critical network devices requires, add those numbers up, and pick a UPS rated for that many watts. Skip the printers, phone and computer battery chargers, 55" UHD TV set, and 800 watt surround sound system.
Next you need to guess at how long the power will be off. Be honest, you and I have no flippin' idea and neither does the power company or Spectrum, your internet provider. Most consumer electronics UPS units provide their rated power for only 5 to 8 minutes. That should be long enough for you to run a quick backup and then shut down a desktop computer.
DO NOT EVER connect your coax cable through a built-in surge protector in the UPS housing!! They let outside broadcast TV and 4G LTE cellphone interference get into the cable, which will severely mess up data upload and download speeds for the entire neigborhood.
Now, after you have bought the right size UPS and plugged only the really important things into its outlets, it's time to work on the real puzzle: Figure out why your network devices don't hold their settings when the lights flicker, then make the needed electronic programming and physical configuration changes.
I have reviewed the TC8717 manual and can confirm there is no option to change the displayed name of a wireless device connected to the WiFi. You can only edit the SSID network name optionally being broadcast by your router on the WiFi channels. Even that possibility is limited to editing only two characters of the SSID.
If it is possible to change something in your iPhone to get a more detailed name display, the experts at your local Apple store should be able to help you. You can also try asking on a Technicolor forum - Google is your friend.
I do apologize for the experience. Typically all troubleshooting and issues with the Mcafee product is handled by Mcafee themselves. Our technical support agents are not able to troubleshoot the antivirus software.

It is legit. I've seen (similar) before.
An owner of copyrighted material filed a complaint that the IP address associated with your account was file-sharing.
I am surprised that the actual material wasn't mentioned (i.e. - The music or movie allegedly being shared).
Is your yahoo email address also listed as a POC for the Spectrum account?
Be advised, they aren't asking you for any infomration, just to eliminate the file-sharing and refresh yourself with the Terms of Service.
Can confirm, this is legitimate.
Wether you were/were not torrenting, it was reported that your service device was used for such.
There are fairly lengthy processes drawn out to deal with these scenarios, so if you do believe it's in error, submit a counter-notification with Spectrum's Security or to validate it's claim properly call Spectrum Securitydirectly from the Spectrum Website.
I can confirm that 1-855-222-7342 is a valid number for our Enterprise Risk Operations department. The source of the issue can also be caused by malware or a virus.

I appreciate your prompt response. I assume your response is an all-inclusive list of features included in your Mcafee Security Suite and therefore Mcafee's password manager is not included. The Mcafee Security Suite provided by TWC/Spectrum must be a non-standard Mcafee package since all standard security packages offered on the Mcafee web site include the password manager.
