Keep beiing redirected to Comcast registration page

I added a new Motorola SurfBoard modem about 2 months ago.  Everything was fine for about 6 weeks but now every once in awhile I while surfing the internet I get redirected to a page that appears to be the Comcast registration page.  Sometimes the page has one box asking me for my Comcast account number and other times the page displays two boxes asking for my Comcast ID and password.  I have scanned my pc for trojans and it appears clean.  Could this be a phone web page tring to get my Comcat info?  The address appears legit as it reads something to like http Comcast Netminder Agent Reg".  Or is it a modem reg issue?

Call in, tell them exactly what is going on and ask them to re-provision the modem. In the meantime can we see the modem's signal stat figures please. Get them here http://192.168.100.1

Not exactly but at least your codeword errors are very low. What we want to see are the "Downstream Power Level, the Upstream Power Level, and the SNR (Signal to Noise Ratio) figures.

Re: Keep beiing redirected to Comcast registration page

You have a bit of a connection quality issue which 'may' be causing the issue. Are there any excess/unneeded coax splitters in the line leading directly to the modem that can be eliminated ? Also try refreshing all connectors within your reach and insure that that are tight. It may still be a provisioning issue with which a phone call will be necessary. If you can't get that upstream power level down below 50dB a tech visit is indicated.

Thanks.  Do you think a Level 1 Comcast tech knows how to re-provision or does that have to be kicked up to a Level 2 Tech?

The first CAE that you get on the line 'should' be able to do this. YMMV.
