surfboard - Plugin to monitor surfboard cable modems
This plugin monitors Motorola Surfboard cable modems, models 4100 and 4200. Most likely more models are compatible since Motorola uses many of the same settings/chipsets across cable modems.
I know this will not work on Toshiba ones since they use a different url and page.
This is real simple: it goes to your cable modem's IP address, generally 192.168.100.1, grabs a HTML file, and parses it.
I use this to see how good my cable connection is. Good if you have choices in your area.

Needs work, some variables used in the plugin should be made into configuration environment variables.
