IMPORTANT EDIT! :

The Arris rep also told me that if I was to factory reset the modem, the McAfee security software would turn itself back on. So if you need to factory reset your modem, be prepared to make another call to Arris.


So this is correct, this was my mis-understanding of "subsequent firmware upgrades” vers “factory reset” but users will get to the page that they can either accept the terms or opt-out of it..  They will not have to call into ARRIS support at this point.. 

 

Bottom line:

  • Device upgrade:  user will not need to do anything..
  • Device factory reset:  user can either accept the terms or opt-out of it via a landing page..

As "The IT Crowd" would ask, " Have you unplugged it and plugged it back in yet?"  Sorry, saw the chance to say it and could not resist.  ;-)

What code do you have on your device?  The bootfile has a upgrade statement on most devices so rebooting would get the device to the latest build that Comcast has approved..
