Comcrap Router Borked

     My Comcrap Cable router (with Cisco firmware) has had a melt down and is NAT’ing me to an address of 71.197.179.184.  Since many of the servers I need to access to do ordinary maintenance are hard-wired to only allow connections from my IP address, I can not access many of them.  Comcrap is supposedly coming out at 8-9am, when I would normally be asleep, to replace this piece of crapola with a new piece of crapola.  Don’t know if it was hacked or a firmware update went bad, or something upstream on their network that pushes the static IP’s to the unit when south but for now I’m very restricted in what I can do to pretty much the same things that you can.  I have an even more colorful term for Comcrap but I am afraid delicate ears will be offended.
