Dear Sir, 

As you said you have console and you able to use WinSCP .. this is good very good .. I will give you the procedures.

1-you have to access the modem by console 
2- user : root
3- password: iDirect 
4- #service idirect-falcon stop
5- #service sshd start
6- open the WinSCP
7- delete opt/ idirect/ falcon/ fpga-image
8- tmp (winscp) copy image file 7-0-5 to tmp from winscp
9-#cd / tmp
10-#cd /etc / idirect/ falcon
11-#cp falcon.opt falcon.opt-BU 
12-#cd /tmp
13-#pwd   will show you /tmp
14-#ls –al 
15-it show you 
  drw…….2 root    root  60….
  Drw……1 root    root  60….
-rw……..1 root    root    remote 7-0-5 pkg
  or what ever remote you want to use
17-#mount –t tmpfs –oremount,size=16m /tmp
19- #package -mx -a remote-7_0_5.pkg
20-#rm -f remote-7_0_5.pkg
21-#chmod 744 package_install.sh
23- package will start install in your modem
24- when the installation done, you have to do this
25-#cp falcon.opt-BU falcon.opt
26-#service idirect_falcon restart

this is not formatting.
this is merely an upgrade/downgrade to a newer falcon without using the GUI (iSite)

Formatting would entitle remove linux completely and reinstalling (The operating system)

''mfb80'', who started the topic, i thought was referring to Netmodems. But the replies I see are reference the infiniti.

Actually, mfb80 states in the original post that 'someone' managed to 'gum up' not one, but Five netmodems, however, what is not clear is; were they messed up all at the same time or one after the other?
