I use the SB6121 V5 modem to connect to my comcast account. Recently (from viewing from my modem log file), I noticed that there was a firmware change (dated Feb 16 2016 11:28:04) pushed out to my SB6121 on May 4 2016. This change took away the ability to remotely reboot my modem thru my LAN connection using the CONFIGURATION tab. I understand that there was some security issue with the factory reset function allowed on that screen, of which I never used and could possibly understand its removal. But the remote reboot function, which was also taken away in this firmware release, was very helpfull due to my modem not being next to my PC's. It allowed me to be able to reboot without being right next to the modem and physically disconnecting/connecting the power supply randomly each month.
Because of the location in which I live, I was an active user of the reboot feature of my modem inorder to maintain good connection speeds which I subscribe and pay for each month. This was one of the primary reasons for purchasing this modem in the first place. Is there any way to have the reboot feature brought back?
