Hmmm.... No i figured the system would just see it was old and upgrade it. I dont have it hooked up now so i can look at firmware version.
Excellent point tho. When I activate the new one monday i will make sure this is done.
Well it's possible the rep you will talk to when having the modem provisioned, won't have access to upgrade the firmware to the latest one cox is using. However if the firmware on the modem, doesn't match what cox is using for that modem in your local cox area. Between 2-4am most days cox runs a modem check, which will push a firmware update to modem's running firmwares, that are not current with the system.
