Hello -- I tried to login into my modem (Technicolor) but was locked out. I thought that I changed the password and forgot it -- so I did a factory reset (using a paper clip) and still
was not able to log into the moden with the default credentials and still was locked now --
Does anyone know if this option was locked out my twc? Thanks
where are you?
nyc has password of the week, lol.
Why did you buy a technicolor all in one?
All in ones are under complete control/reset by the cable co's
and are not recomended by anyone. The cable co's change the passwords to their standards..
Hello -- Thanks for the reply -- I did not by the (cable) modem -- it was the one that was
given to me my TWC -- so they block out the direct modem access? -- I kind of figured that
when I see that you can set the wi-fi password via the web interface -- so it that the case now?
so the fact that I can login the modem is a defect in the unit and not TW change the firmware/pw so I can't login?
No, you didn't quite understand whatr MsRaye said. Users of TWC-rented modems are only permitted to make changes to a few settings, but definitely NOT to load or alter the firmware. Users changing passwords to their TWC-owned data modems is not permitted, because TWC MUST have 24 hour access to support and adjust it. You may be able log in and THINK you have successfully changed the password, but the modem will detect and report the intrusion and TWC will then automatically force the password back to (one of) theirs.
If you choose to avoid the TWC monthly modem rental charge, you can purchase your own modem; most contributors to this forum do recommend this approach. TWC will push down their currently approved firmware when the modem is initially registered on the system. You would also have to purchase your own router device (and optional WiFi), which you will manage and support.
