This repository contains a simple api to wrap the web interface of the Ziggo Connect Box (i.e. the Compal CH7465LG). It is implemented in Python >= 3.7.
At the moment it only contains the functionality that I needed while I was investigating my device, but pull requests that improve the documentation or add features are welcome.
Compal does not provide information about the hardware. The modem has no FCC registration.
However, the related Arris TG2492 modem was submitted to the FCC. The FCC documents for this
modem are available. Some interesting documents (internal photos) have been mirrored to
danman performed an (excellent) analysis of the modem where the procedure for extracting
the content of the firmware and modifying it is discussed. This writeup also examines the
DOCSIS certificates used.
The modem seems to be based on the Intel Puma 6 chipset. There is a long thead on (perceived) performance problems caused by jitter on DSLReports. See [ALL] SB6190 is a terrible modem - Intel Puma 6 / MaxLinear mistake
The modem most likely contains open source components. Requests to Compal requesting source code of these components, to an e-mail address on the Compal site, have not been answered yet.
A security evaluation of the Connect Box was posted
on-line. This report is included in the
examples directory contains some example scripts. My main use case is re-provisioning the
modem. An example script for this task is included.
