My parents used to have UPC (now Ziggo). They used to have a cable
modem. That got changed (a year or something ago) to a
modem/router/access-point combo that's remote managed by default. In
order to keep their networking setup working I had to disable the router
and access-point bits. As for the remote-management: at the time I
didn't succeed at disabling that, though I cannot remember what the
reason for that was.
