True or False?
I came across this on a website and I wondered if any of you knew if there was any truth to it's claims. This seems almost too good to be true. Anyone know anything about this, and is this even legal?
*~* Modifying Your Cable Modem To High Speeds *~*

Next, goto the folder

Yes and no. It's legal because you are modifying your own machine to handle broadband connections, apparently better. So you're not modifying the modem but rather how Win9X/ME handles the broadband.
As to whether you'll really see speed gains.. well... You might see some but I doubt you'll see huge differences.
