Development that's already made life easier for uncappers and service squatters.
Cable modem hackers conquer the co-ax
DerEngel doesn't believe any cable modem is going to be immune from customization, and he says his team is ready to prove it. "If you have to, you can just change the [programmable memory chip] -- desolder it, put it back on there," he says. "As long as the customer has the actual hardware in their hands, the customer will always be able to change what he has."

I would like to find a way to switch between a hot and a stable modem without calling the cable company to reset the modem. I have two cable modems, I have a hacked Motorola Surfboard and (I can't remember the other brand). Is there a way I can easily connect and reconnect the modems without the cable company having to reboot the service? I currently use the excuse I buy wholesale and surplus goods for resale and use my home network for testing. I haven't had a problem yet.
