Hey

I am getting a very similiar problem! Modem reboots after everything says "ok".

The power light then flashes the top and second light flash together and then the power light stays on solid. After about 5 minutes the unit then appears to restart again and boots normally without the hack upgrade!

Any insight would be greeeeeat!

Regards

When netboot starts does it log onto the ftp server showing ftp jmcqueen rickey7 accepted ,then accepting the vxWorks file and then logging off. If not then it either hasn`t been done properly or your firmware does not support netboot which means you will have to use the serial cable method. For mickmc68 you most probably have 2 ethernet ports on your motherboard and the one you are not using will have taken the ip 192.168.100.10
