TC8717T access and Port forwarding
I have the TC8717T modem and there is no way to get into it using the IP address 192.168.0.1 or any other IP address. I need to do port forwarding that I had set up through my router and nothing worked. So I connected directly to the cable modem, rebooted it, and still no way to get into that modem. Checking ports on the modem....they are being blocked. I called Spectrum and they told me because I do not subscribe to WiFi on that modem is why I cannot get into it because they put it in bridge mode when you do not want the wifi. And the only way I can change that is to exchange it for a MTA modem that is a modem only with telephone jacks. Reading some post in here, I see that other people have that same modem without WiFi and they seem to get into it and can work with port forwarding. What straight modem without WiFi would be recommended because it seems I will never be able to get into the TC8717T so I can forward ports. My router is and ASUS RT AC1900P.
