View Full Version : Cable Modem Speeds

I read somewhere that you can uncap your maximum rates. My service is 500k down and 128k up. If it is possible to uncap these speeds and achieve better. How does one go about this??? I'd love to have more speed.

Why not in the US? Then whats it like in other countries?

Explain further!

AFAIK, you can uncap your modem in the US too, but it's not recommended to do cause the minute your isp finds out you uncapped your modem, they'll most assuredly kill your account (and they may even be able to do more to you with the DMCA and stuff)

dunno if i'm allowed to post this, but anyway...... http://www.cablemodemhack.com has some info and i think programs for uncapping some modems

Why not just stump up a few quid and pay like the rest of us ?
ISP'S are clever enough to see whats going on..
Just upgrade ;)

trying to now. using modem uncapper i found it on ft. dont no if it will work. I thought it was done at the other end. (isp's end)

thats wat i thought but obviously not.. i was reading the modem hack forum and they will b bringing out a new program soon.

it used to be really easy to uncap
before they updated their system software
they have tftp-enforce now
so we have to hope project fireball will help us uncap again

this refers to the NTL UK Modems

Edit :TYPO!

what's good websites that have programs that may help you uncap your modems besides the one Yusuke gave us before?

Get TCP/IP Optimizer from www.speedguide.net -- it tweaks your internet connection.

It's not an illegal cablemodem uncapper, but it CAN let you get closer to whatever arbitrary limits have been put on your connection by your ISP.

From the fastest websites, it's allowed me to DOUBLE my download speed (from about 60-80KB/sec to 140-200KB/sec.)

i think the cablemodemhack.com is the main uncapping site on the web. i haven't seen any others around ;)

Uncapping is quite useless unless you are switching to another ISP anyway , cuz your ISP will kick you out in no-time <_<

BTW It&#39;s not possable for me....my modem can go for any speed ( within normal terms ) but my speed is controlled from my ISP.
Too bad :P

that can always be tweaked around to meet your needs with some work.

i wish there was some other sites about uncapping...

03-13-2003, 07:30 PM
have you triad a search on google?> thats ur best bet

03-13-2003, 11:18 PM
yes i did, but the search has over 15000 pages or more...plus their is a lot of fake sites supporting only virus and simply tweaks that can be found on other sites, that promise more on their site..

Cable modems aren&#39;t capped. <_<
