So I swapped from U-verse 24mbps service to Time Warners (RR) 50mbps service today. I had everything ready for the tech. I even went as far as having the cable line on the table next to a laptop with a surge protector on the table. Line was already ready to be plugged in outside. With my preperations it only took them 5 minutes to get me online. Hopefully they will take that into consideration when they are billing me that 40 dollar install charge!
If you are a serious tech geek like me you probably already have a really nice router with custom firmware setup. The first thing you are going to try to do is put the router into bridge mode. Let me save you some time by telling you that bridge mode has been hidden by Time Warner. To access bridge mode you must go to one of the following:
http://192.168.100.1/TlModeChange.asp (This one is usually to change it back into NAT mode)
*Note: default login and password is: user
Don’t forget once in bridge mode it’s just like any other cable modem. When I say it’s like every other cable modem I mean you will need to power cycle the modem by unplugging the power then replugging it anytime you connect the modem to a new device. So far the service is rock solid but I will update this blog post if something goes wrong.
