okay here we go. im going to try to explain you asbestas i can to accomplish re-configuring your sb5100, sb4100 or sb3100 cable modem theory of cable modem working all the cable modems when it boots up it will search for an "imagefile" where in all configuration like your upload speed limit and download speed limit is defined. this "image file" is stored in isps tftp server. modem will be pre-configured with the isps tftp server ip address and the image file name to be downloaded. when the modem boots up it query tftp server and download image file from[tftp] [server] according to this this our speed limits will be set.our missionget this image file from isps tftp server, reconfigure it according to our need and force our modem to download this file from our computer rather than downloading it from our isps tftp server.
1). get cable [modems] mac-addreaayou can either look at the back of the modem to get this mac address or you can logon to your cable modem with your web browser192.168.100.1/ . this is internal html pages stored within your docsis cable modem (sb5100, sb4100 and sb3100) that gives you even more vital information on configuration. unless it is turned off by your isp. this feature might be totally turned off by your isp.
