First off, thank you for downloading the Theoryshare Cable Modem Modification Kit, in this new revision you will find all the tools you need to modify your modem to it's fullest potential. Before getting started be sure to read this brief introduction, and review the frequently asked questions below. For those unfamiliar with Cable Modem Modification, two main steps are involved in the process. The first step is to load modified firmware on your cable modem. Procedures for this vary from modem to modem, and you can find specific guides in the tutorials folder, however this part of the process generally involves opening your cable modem and performing some soldering on the modem's motherboard. This part of the process has real potential to damage your modem, and if you are uncomfortable with this you should purchase a pre-modified modem from our on line store here: http:// www.theoryshare.com/online-store in fact modems start at just $45, all of the modems we sell come preloaded with modified firmware and any soldering necessary is included with your purchase. The second part of the modification process involves finding faster config files, mac addresses, etc to increase the speeds of your newly modified modem, this is what makes cable modem modification worth while, and there is ample documentation on this subject in here so I will leave the introduction at that. Have fun and be sure to visit http://www.theoryshare.com for more info and support forums. Frequently Asked Questions:

FAQ #1
What is Cable Modem Modification, Uncapping, and What are Premods Tell me More Written by Shifter Saturday, 10 November 2007

Improving your speed is a definite given. Right now, I'm subscribed to the 4000/384, but I sniffed out a config file with speeds of 8800/1000. That's what I'm running at right now. There are lots of hard to find configs out there, but a 3rd party sniffer or the built in sniffer can find them if you let it go for awhile. Depending on your isp, you could sniff out 16000/2000. It all comes down to what the isp has to offer. Some people are lucky enough to still be able to get their modem to bypass the tftp server and take a modified config file from a spoofed server set up on their system. That is very rare today, but those that can do it are able to set their upload/download to custom values. As far as getting caught, your isp has ways of finding out who's using their bandwidth, but it costs more money and takes time to do so. In most cases, and because you are not disrupting the network, it's not worth their time/money. Plus, you are flying under the radar. In the few, public cases that individuals have been caught, they were totally abusing the bandwidth. Like leaving Bit Torrent or other file sharing programs running at full speed indefinitely. Red flags will fly if an unknown source is downloading several TeraBytes a month as well as uploading countless Gigabytes. Not to mention the server type, FTP setups that were being utilized. The entire situation was ugly. Cable internet is a shared connection. Killing the bandwidth causes problems for other users on the node. I've yet to read a post from someone here at Theoryshare regarding their isp watching them or sending out any letters. That's because we go about our internet business as usual. These people, myself included, enjoy the faster speeds and use close to the same amount of bandwidth as before. It's not planned or anything. I just continue with my normal activities. My speeds are just faster. Currently, the Surfboard series modems (SB3100 - SB4200) are able to be uncapped without any need of cables. Just download the Uncapping Kit and follow the steps. That's it. The SB5100 took quite some time to exploit. Finally, this year, it became an option. In order to uncap the SB5100, you will need a blackcat cable. This cable will need to be soldered on to specific points inside the modem. You will then need the flash software to get it going.

FAQ #2
Can I Steal Service with your Products? Written by Administrator Wednesday, 12 May 2004 While under certain circumstances products sold or distributed through Theoryshare may physically be used to steal service, Theoryshare does not condone cable theft and no support will be given to any user wishing to steal service.

FAQ #3
What Cable Modem Models Can Be Modified? Written by Administrator Saturday, 10 November 2007 While other models may be uncapped Theoryshare supports only the Motorola Surfboard SB3100 SB5101 Models excluding VOIP models and the SB4220. The SB4100 and SB4200 can easily be modifed using netbooting with the uncap kit. The SB3100 can also be modified through software but its more difficult. The SB5100 can be modified but you must solder an adapter to the modem motherboard in order to change the firmware or perform any modifications. Just recently the RCA DCM315 is supported as well.

FAQ #4
Is Cable Modem Modification Illegal? Written by Administrator Wednesday, 12 May 2004 Generally, modifying a device that you purchased is not illegal, or using our devices on a network that you own or have permission, is not illegal. There are many restrictions to doing so, and every country is different. Theoryshare takes no responsibility for user actions.
