only if a host on your side of the modem is infected.
the 192.168.* address would only be accessible from
the usb interface. so if the pc connected to the modem
got infected, or another pc on your network, then CR
could possibly affect it. and it does have a history of
mucking up non-iis servers as well as the iis servers
that is was designed to muck up.
