    The same way as before. Just be warned that the cable company will find out and probably ban you for life if you are lucky. They will sue or prosecute you if you aren't lucky.

    So do you feel lucky, punk?

    it used to be possible to 'unlock' a cable modem, removing the upload cap. the cable company could easily catch you doing this tho lol.

    FBI nabs 17 in cable modem uncapping
    Paul Shyrock, vice president of information technology at Buckeye Cablesystem, found the 23 violators, whose modems were uncapped to as high as 100 megabits per second, a speed the Buckeye Cablesystem network could not even theoretically provide. Shyrock estimated that the cost of the theft totaled roughly US$11,000 for each of the 23 uncappers. That total is $3,000 above the minimum required for the FBI to get involved. 17 of the 23 uncappers that were served search warrants were actuallly visited by FBI agents.

    Have fun, I did this when Mediacom first came out with cable. I uploaded and downloaded like crazy and about an hour later they called and asked me to reset the modem because they were getting some weird statistics. So i reset everything and reset the modem.
