I am not sure this will work but you might try:

  • Call your service provider from a different phone line than the one your modem is connected to, and ask if there is a firmware update available.
  • Ask them to push the update to your modem.
  • The next step would be disconnecting the cable from the modem.
  • You will notice a small button on the back of modem "factory reset".Press it.
  • Now power off modem and power on without connecting cable.
  • If you are done with the previous step ,  try to log into modem at 192.168.0.1.
  • Wait for the modem to restart by itself and the update is complete.
