Does XFinity firmware update reset default modem password?
I own my own Arris SB8200 modem, and I thought I had just forgotten my password for the modem’s config page (at http://192.168.100.1) but I have performed Arris’ “30-30-30” factory reset procedure twice and neither “password” nor the last eight of the modem S/N works as the default admin password.
Those are the only two options, and the only thing I can think of that could break that after a factory reset would be a firmware update that changed the default password. Is this something that has possibly happened? It goes without saying that in no case should XFinity be locking me out of my own equipment.
