How SPECTRUM cable can lock down your modem from other internet providers

UPDATE:
POTENTIAL SOLUTION FOUND. By disconnecting the modem from the cable feed, unplugging it from power, then powering up without yet reconnecting to cable, I was able to access the reset functions of my modem. Restoring the factory settings and then restarting from that menu showed IPv4 only configuration. Reconnecting and rebooting the modem put it right back to IPv6 on Spectrum’s cable. (I have not try this personally but its claimed to work) #Spectrum

I explain how Time Warner Cable (TWC) or Spectrum can lock down your modem so other internet providers like WOW cannot use the modem if you decide to switch companies. #twc #timewarnercable
