I've got a 256k connection and it's getting on my nerves. Is there a way to hack the modem and improve the internet connection?

It probably depends on what type of modem you have. You can always search google.

You have been alloted a certain range of bandwidth, and that's what you will get. You can't really hack the modem to improve speed.

isnt 256k like from years ago...like dialup?


In Argentina we still have 56 kb...
And yeah, it can be done, but only if you have Cable Internet. If you have ADSL, you can't.

Ah, the good old days of dial-up. OK, maybe they sucked. Seriously, just get high-speed like the rest of the world. You can't hack your modem.

NO.....

Internet speed has nothing to do with the modem itself. You could get 1.5mbps or more on the same modem with no modifications. It's teh bandwidth that your ISP allocates you. If you want faster net, you gotta pay for it man.

I read somewhere the modem loads an image and connects with the ISP. What if i buy a used modem that was programed to 1mbps? or is it a line thing?

It actually is possible, and relatively simple.

The problem being that its also easily caught.
