Linksys CM100 firmware upgrade?

Is there a firmware upgrade for the Linksys CM100? My CM100's web interface keeps crashing after a week of use.

If there is, your ISP will have to install it.  Linksys will not give it to you and there is no way for you to install it.

That's weird. Why would I expect my ISP to install something on my equipment? I upgrade the firmware on my Belkin WAP, for instance ...

Cable modems are a different animal.  You, the end user, cannot upgrade the firmware.  Even Linksys cannot.  Only the ISP can.  This is so the ISP can ensure that their network operates properly.

What are you talking about?? Linksys(Cisco) the manufacturer of said device, would 100% be responsible for updating their firmware on their device that they manufacture, NOT some random ISP!

 

It is the user's responsibility to patch their hardware and keep their devices up to date, not the ISP!
