Change the title. This has nothing to do with Motorola. They haven't made cable modems since 2013.

In 2013 ARRIS, already a world leader in the cable industry, acquired Motorola's Home Division, the world leader in cable modem sales at retail, creating a powerful alliance to bring you THE best most reliable products available in the marketplace.

AFAIK my old Motorola Surfboard, made under Motorola, doesn't have this Arris garbage.

Shouldn't the blame go to vendors who don't change the default seed rather than Arris?

I believe that should be correct but I bought mine from Best Buy, Best Buy isn't really a vendor they are a retailer Smilie. I called Comcast and explained the situation. The tech had no clue but he happily fixed it.

BB aren't providing the firmware though - Comcast are and, according to the story, they never used the default seed.

"The tech had no clue" - at Comcast, why am I not surprised?
