How to turn your cable modem into a brick for ~$20
Lancity modems...who the hell is still using these?!? At the very least you will turn your cable modem into a brick and have to come up with inventive excuses to get a new one, at the most the notoriety this book is getting might inspire your ISP to make you poster person for their TOS infractions.
All I will say is that 'uncapping' your modem is only one step on the road the bandwidth utopia, there are controls and monitors on most devices that will not allow you to bypass pre-configured thresholds and/or will automagically alert the company of your attempts to do so.
