RE: Sb6141 stop working
My apologies. I'm new to this. Can someone give me a high level description on how this works?

Here is what I think I understand so far:
- SURFboard modems are the most popular... since they are easiest to "hack?" ..or more widely supported by custom firmware?
- "Testers" load custom firmware to be able to apply certs and keys. I'm assuming keys are used to decrypt the cert.
- These certs are taken from valid paying customers? --which allows gives them access to the "free internet" because they are whitelisted by the ISP? Is that correct?
- Regarding config files, is that separate from the cert? I am assuming so, but wondering what its purpose is. Is it for capping/uncapping speeds?

Any clarification would be greatly appreciated. And again, for educational and testing purposes only.

CONFIRMED -- swapped two broken SB6141s, and one is working. I have yet to try the other one in the other household.

I only bought the whole container because Newname was kind enough to load each modem with active certs for my area. Hard to find a good seller like this. 5 stars for you .
