said by pflog:I wouldn't know. All I was told was that Comcast found his neighbor was stealing his cable. He was hacked as far as his Xbox Live account went, so maybe his connection was hacked in a similar way and that's how his neighbor gained access. said by Chris 313: said by YukonHawk:
Ahhh..okay.. Maybe if I opened my eyes I would have seen that. LOL. I completely agree with you.
So did our whole group. We were cursing the neighbor for being an asshole and screwing with the connection when we were gaming. It got so bad he couldn't host because of drops caused by the neighbor and stealing his feed.
How exactly was he stealing his feed? I'm honestly curious, because as far as I know there's no way to just split someone's cable then use THEIR provisioning on a different modem. Was the person's WIFI wide open or did the guy hack it and connect that way to steal from it?
