Re: [INTERNET] Arris TG862G wireless modem

said by coaxguy:

Also just a FYI, cogeco has complete control and eyes on your wireless SSID and password from their end. Not so secure.

If you think that is bad, TWC uses the model number concatenated with the MAC address as the default PSK. And they use the model number as the SSID. And users can't change those defaults, as they are locked out of the config GUI. And this info was published in an Esquire piece this past July. And they are still deploying to unwitting subscribers.
