is there a default admin and password or is it different for everyone i have got mine from a repesentative of shaw but online from port forward has a default of admin - cusadmin and password - password but mine was different
The online sites that give instructions for setting up port-forwards portforward.com for example, usually will use the default, or most commonly used firmware, for the DPC3825 for example, I believe the actual default is admin password blank
Custom firmwares, especially on modems, because they are customized by the service provider, Shaw in this case, change certain things.
Shaw's default for the DPC3825 is cusadmin and the serial number for the password
Roger's default for DPC3825 is cusadmin and password for the password
As an example, every provider can, and often do, do their own thing, unless the instruction sites specify a particular ISP's modems, they might just pick one.
The user name is the same for every one which is "cusadmin" however the password is different which is on a white sticker on the modem beside "passphrase"
absan is correct that the user name is always "cusadmin" by default. But that the password is unique to each modem. The password is actually the modem's serial number.
This is in fact the correct solution, and it worked for me.
