Default Re: Cant stop freq scan

first of all, whats the name of the firmware you loaded
and what is the name of the guide too

anyway here's what you will need, copy and right click/paste each line seperatley, and no caps-lock, and no cable feed
and make sure you use hyperterminal, also all these commands listed can be automatically done with the 250_configurator.exe

cd \cm_hal
cd \

scanning should stop

write_memory -s 4 0x807e8b98 0xAABBCCDD (press enter)
write_memory -s 2 0x807e8b9c 0xEEFF (press enter)

Replace aabbccddeeff with your mac you want to use
Next we must force the modem to commit this to flash.

cd \non
cd \

cd \non
cd hal
cm_tuner 19
annex_b (for c&w replace with annex_a)
usb_mac_address <your usb mac address here> (enter as aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff)

change the username and pass for telnet, you should do this
cd \
cd \non
cd msg
user_name <your desired username here>
password <your desired password here>
block all remote updates. stops modem taking any software updates
cd \
cd non-vol
cd snmp
max_dload_tries 0

dont forget to open the modem webpage and enter the downstream frequency then go back an type these in to save it
cd \
cd \non
cd \

reeboot modem and your done
and you should come online,
