Yeah, it is sort of maddening. I just checked the sticker on the side of the modem and the default name and password are not even close to what's in the screencap (and why I didn't think to check it in the first place is beyond me, but either way, that's not/wasn't the issue, either).

It kind of reminds me of AOL proxy caching issues back in the day (which would make it a problem on Comcast's end). Long story short, you'd get served a copy of a web page someone else had seen. In this version (if my hunch is anywhere near right, but who knows) L* is on an IP very close to my own and Comcast just didn't expire the cache for me. I mean, if that's the case, it's a huge mistake (almost like going to check out on a webpage and it prefills with someone else's Visa card information because the cache is served to the next customer instead of cleared properly) and the fact that it did go away on page refresh almost makes me lean toward that as the explanation, but I didn't think to examine or save related cookies or other page info, so we might not ever really know.
