Truthfully, the only reason I'd hack my cable modem is for SNMP access for Cacti. That way I can properly monitor signal levels, bandwidth, and errors without having to rely on the web interface.
..now if the Cable Companies would allow SNMP read-only, I wouldn't have an issue.
the older docsis 2 cable modem i had did have some read-only snmp access with most parts having write access.
this worked quite well with solarwinds broadband tools as well as allowing me to change certain parameters to fit the style i desired.
these changes however were moot if the modem received a forced upgrade or a power cycle, the parameters would have to be set again.--
