I am not sure but I do not think so. FWIW you could try an snmpwalk on
it. A lot of modems have a diagnostic mode that is either accessed by
magic software from the customers Ethernet port and an ip addr of
something like or just accessing that address alone sometimes
gets you a menu. IIRC some of them are passwd protected. It depends on the
manufacturer. Please keep in mind that it has been a couple of years since I
even looked at a cm and my memory is a little fuzzy on the exact details.
