Getting the Real Administrator Access to Time Warner RoadRunner’s Ubee Cable Modem

This post is going to be short and sweet as it's something I meant to put up here when I found it sometime back in mid-2011.  I'm not even sure if Time Warner is still using these Ubee cable modems for their RoadRunner offering, but I'm sure that there are at least a few people out there who still have them.  When you get the modem installed initially, they give you some default credentials.  Something like user/user or admin/admin.  Using these credentials, you are able to access the device and many of the features that it has to offer you.  What you are not able to do is access the menus where you can change how the router is actually configured for internet access, change the master password, or prevent Time Warner from accessing your modem, and subsequently, your network.  To fix this, you just need to know the following secret...

The real administrator username that comes configured on these modems when you get them from Time Warner is the last eight digits of the unit's MAC address sans the colons separating out the values.  This is unique to your device, but can be found pretty easily by looking at the user interface that you do have access to.  The password for this user is "c0nf1gur3m3".  Use that and you should be in.  Feel free to change the password while you're in there to keep the Time Warner folks out.

One other kinda secret thing to note is that if you do want to change how the router is configured for internet access, you will need to go to http://192.168.0.1/TlModeChange.asp on your router to do so.  Once there, you can change it to Bridge mode, NAT mode, Router mode, or NAT Router mode depending on what you are looking to do with it.  Hope you enjoyed this simple solution for getting the real administrator access to Time Warner RoadRunner's Ubee cable modem.

  1. Does anyone have any suggestions to use to try for a login I.D. & a password for Time Warner’s App on a ROKU? Were I live at in Michigan we don’t even have the option of getting TWC, we only have Comcast & AT&T. Thank you.

  2. >Purchased used 3611 on Amazon for 23.00/shipped – delivered to San Antonio from DC area in two days
    >the 3611 is on TWCs list of “allowed” modems and is rated up to 100m
    >accessed super admin via last 8 of mac addy login w’ conf1gur3m3 pw

  3. follow-up question: how to change the default login and/or remote configuration access login? what is the port used for remote configuration? 8080?

    the reason i was looking for root access to my ubee is that i returned home today after having service for about a week to find that my wireless devices were no longer connecting. oddly, the SSID was as configured (my own ssid & password, not default).

    i patched in physically to check the settings/status and the first thing i saw was another MAC address! sure enough, in my network folder, there was a cheap burner model smart phone listed. of course, i immediately used MAC filtering to keep that device out and changed the SSID/Password. immediately turned off WPS and, in what is probably a useless ruse, i renamed the SSID to the 2WIRE default that’s used by AT&T so future would-be “hackers” would have a harder time finding credentials for remote configuration.

    to wit: i ordered a new router and modem immediately. hardware mass-issued by isp’s is so widely exploited and documented, you’re really asking for trouble using it for WLAN.

  4. I know this is an old post but since it’s the first page that pops up on google searches I thought I would share. After some digging around I found this login stored on my Ubee Modem (Model DVW32CB)

    Username: admin
    Password: C0nf1gur3Ubee#

    Hope that helps anyone trying to enable bridge mode like I was

  14. I’m trying to change my Downstream and Upstream. Basically I want to unlock it.
    Any suggestions?

  15. P.S. I forgot to add the modem type. Ubee DVW3201B

  16. I’m not sure if anyone is still monitoring this page/post, but in hopes that someone will see my post….I have a few questions.

    I have the Ubee DDW365 modem/router TWC provided.

    1. Does anyone know how to change the real admin u/n or p/w? Under the “account” tab it only gives the option to change the user u/n and/or p/w.

    2.This modem/router’s documentation says that it is single band on 2.4Mhz ONLY. (Also, there are no settings for configuring 5Mhz)
    However, mine is broadcasting a signal on 5765Mhz, Channel 153, using WEP encryption, and no SSID. Does anyone know why or what this is for? How do I make it stop

  17. @ Rob
    I have the Ubee DDW 36c and the wireless settings are a bit strange. Under the wireless tab you will see “Radio” and “Primary Network” in the left panel and just above you can choose 2.4 or 5ghz. Also you can swap between them on the “radio” settings page then switch to “primary network” page and whatever you switched it too is still active.

    I know you have a different modem but maybe they are the same interface.

  18. @Chris
    Thanks for attempting to help, however, I do not have that option and like I said (I think I did) this modem is NOT supposed to be equipped with the ability to broadcast on the 5Ghz channel

  19. I live in Austin, TX and have DVW32CB modem. None of the user/pw combinations suggested here work for me, and the TIModeChange.asp page does not appear to exist on my modem. Does anybody have any suggestions?

  20. Same as @Ryan in NYC over the past couple weeks. Looks like they pushed a firmware update that changed it, possibly because of the Charter acquisition. When this happens we have had to call Time Warner and ask them to put it into bridge mode.

  21. Hi,

    Just had TW/Spectrum cable installed. Have DVW32CB modem. The password combo below worked for me.

    Went to status/operation mode and saw the device was already in bridge mode (to my RT-AC68U). Other connection options available: NAT, Router, NAT Router. So all good here.
