TWC - KCMO - New Firmware Ou for Arris TG852G - 7.5.32D.TW

I just rebooted my modem yesterday and it wouldn't come back up. Internet and phone were both hosed. I pressed the reset button (to restore to factory defaults) and the router proceeded to download new firmware. It is version 7.5.32D.TW and is dated Mon May 7 17:21:19 EDT 2012.

After the upgrade I logged into 192.168.100.1, username 'admin' and password 'password'. Everything looked the same. I of course turned everything off (upnp, SPI firewall, dhcp, etc), then put it in 'bridge' mode (which dumbs the router down to a simple modem). I use my own router (Cisco SA540).

Everything is working the same as before. Hopefully the firmware is as stable, or more, than before. I have never had a problem with this router/modem.

Do anyone know what changes have been made in this firmware release? Perhaps getting ready for ipv6?

I just got this firmware updated tonight and the username and password do not work anymore. Are we not able to change our own settings anymore?

I just noticed that I too got the update. I don't know what the update fixes or adds, but I hadn't noticed any trouble with the modem since I had it installed.

are you talking about accessing the advanced settings and wireless settings? I've never had access to that. I have access to the basic download and upload channel info and hardware log.

Wireless settings... the default username and password appears to have changed so you can't set things like SSID, bridge mode, etc without going through Time Warner it appears.
