When your connection is "capped", your internet provider limits your speed to control the amount of bandwidth you use at any given time. Usually, this is done by the firmware inside the modem. When he says "uncapped", he means to remove the cap and let you download at an unlimited speed. Afterwards, your speed will only be limited by the amount of bandwidth your internet provider has available.

If you don't know the term capped, then I highly doubt you have the ability to reprogram the firmware of the modem. Also, being able to uncap a cable/dsl modem is so complicated, that I have heard of very few people that have actually gotten it to work.

Yes it is still illegal to uncap your modem even though it is yours.

Same as buying a wide open cable box or satellite receiver is illegal.

Mot to mention, your ISP will eventually figure out that you have changed the config files and bust you for it.

So, it is just plain not worth it.

Larry, have you tried all the tweak suggestions from TMN?
