I got a second hand 7363, but it refuses to reset to the normal factory settings. If I reset it (holding reset button 6 seconds, restarting with reset button pressed, holding for 180 seconds), it will always go back to sending SSID "CableWifi" and "Bright House Networks".
I can however access and control the AP when I hook it up to my ZoneDirector. After that I can ssh into it, upgrade firmware and everything else.
But a factory reset will always set it back to the CableWifi settings, with non-standard admin credentials and those funny SSIDs.
Is this possible? Are the factory default settings stored somewhere else in the device, in a way that upgrading firmware does not affect it? Is there a way to upload or force the normal default factory settings to the device?
PS. I contacted the cable company Bright House Networks because I thought it might be a missing device. But they looked it up, and it is not reported as missing or stolen.
