Today my internet connection went down. So, as per usual, I went to my soekris machine, running m0n0wall and located the external interface, and went to renew/release. Upon releasing and renewing, It seemed the cable modem was given the IP of So, I quickly thought “hmm” and opened up a browser. Then I tried to access but I was prompted with a username/password box, which I was not able to guess with about 5 attempts so I quickly gave up.

Then came the interesting part. I decided to try in my browser-bar to see what happened. Low and behold, I was given an interface that required no logins or anything and seems to be an interface to my cable modem. What lies at is still a mystery.

Check the screenshots for what I saw. Interesting to note the cable modem can’t get the date right.
