The diagnostics page of most cable modems is http://192.168.100.1

Things you can look for that will affect your service are:
-Receive power less than -10db

You need to take out the battery, take out the bios battery, and then short the contacts of the bios battery holder to ground. If you don't, the capacitors on the board will still hold voltage and the bios won't be cleared. (This is the same thing the BIOS reset jumper does on desktop systems.)
