Unblocking devices

I have a few devices that were once blocked from using the network that I now wish to unblock but I can find neither the blocked list, which I know used to be there, nor a way to unblock these devices.  Short of dumping my entire router configuration and doing a hard reset and redoing everything that I have set up is there ANY WAY to unblock these devices.  This needs a solution but from what I have found it appears that once a device has been blocked, on purpose or by accident, you lose that device forever on your network.

You need to share the information about your hardware and how it is set up.

Re: Unblocking devices

I have an ARRIS Group, Inc. TG1682G moodem.  As for actual configuration info I am not going to openly post that here in an open forum.  Thing is, there has to be a table in the modem holding these devices and worst case scenario I would just want to dump this table completely or best case, just delete the entries I need, leaving the other blocks in place.
