Not sure what the concern is here. Cable model with builtin WiFi
(managed WiFi) is part of the service you signed up for and you are
free to use your own WiFi solutions. Chances are the CPE is rented
from ISP... Are you expecting the passphrase to get stored as a one
way hash?

Arris Touchstone has TR-069 connecting to ACS for configuration/management.

This platform is ridiculously insecure and the web interface
essentially does SNMP read/write over HTTP.
