Modem Admin Tool Login

Yes, this question again.  I understand WHY the installation tech would change this, but....why wouldn't het TELL me he did, and what the new password was?  Bad form, Comcast.  Is there no way to find out what it is, change it, etc, without a factory reset?

OK, so I assume I'll have to set my SSID/password again, which is not a problem.  But what happens to my phone?

 

I wouldn't be so quick to try to get into if it didn't say my firewall setting is "low".  I work in IT Security, and "low" is not a good thing when it comes to firewalls.

FWIW, and AFAIK, those gateway device's firewalls are *overkill* and a "low" setting is actually more like "medium" / normal setting like the retail device firewall's are.
