While other models may be uncapped Theoryshare supports only the Motorola Surfboard SB – SB Models excluding VOIP models and the SB Cable Modem Hacking Guide With Pictures Version VII Written By SB – SB Models excluding VOIP models and the SB Ok Guys and Gals I decided to put all the tutorials together kind of like a Haynes Manual to modem hacking. Everything that’s covered within is available.

One hacm I found the internal release notes about the firmware, authored by the engineers. This small flow gives the manufactured modem a weird bulge that could have been easily avoided during development.

You will then end up hakc a file named config. In this chapter, you will learn how cable modems connect to the Internet througii the use of standard coaxial cables, as well as the basic topology of a cable modem network, the problems associated with cable modems, the alternative to cable modems DSLand the possibility of eavesdropping over cable connections. Both images have a byte Message-Digest 5 MD5 checksum that is used to test the authenticity of the firmware.

Originally designed to offer Video on Sv3100 VoD to consumers, DSL was quickly adopted as a broadband alternative, alongside cable service. This program especially helped users who were unable to accomplish this step manually. Now, even hacl an ISP changed some of its settings, the user could account for these new defaults by changing the ZUP scripts, while still using the same basic application program to modify and override them. You are assured of this because CableLabs has tested the equipment in their private lab.

Hack modem + isp and get high speed

The MIPS architecture is extremely powerful and cheap to manufacture, making it ideal for small embedded devices, such as cable modems. Data bits are grouped into pairs and represented by a unique waveform, called a symbol.

They gave me a modem and a PCI Ethernet card, along with a half-page contract that said I would not use their services for illegal activities.

Each quadrant contains four symbols that are each represented by four bits. The cap is by far the most controversial limitation defined in the DOCSIS standard because it provides the ability to control what end users want most; their speed. The Creation of DSL As the demand for faster home Internet service increased, many companies offering a variety of Internet services started to spring to life, and cable companies began using their existing coax cable networks to offer digital Internet sh3100.

Now open up internet explorer and type Now start a new copy of HyperTerminal, this time we select: Change Your Config File Step 4: Sh3100 analyzing the SB firmware, we concluded that the device was secure. My Origin It all began five years ago when a close friend and I were attempting to make our cable modems go faster using hardware modifications to remove barriers that we hxck were installed to limit their speed. However, this new standard requires a consumer modem upgrade because earlier modem hardware is not capable of this faster upload speed.

This Database could change at any moment, config files are constantly being reviewed and updated by Virgin Media, this list is accurate on the day of posting.

Right click on local area connection and click properties. This device is meant to be connected between your router and your cable modem. The internal power supply The only user input device on this modem is a push button momentary- on switch mounted on the top-right of the PCB, as shown in Figure xb3100 The Physical Network Layer Figure shows the typical cable coax network topology, a diagram of the elements that make up the coax network.

How Data Is Communicated A modem is any device that modulates and demodulates signals for transmission over a medium not compatible with the original signal.

Console now switched to Telnet session It’s unfortunate that 3Com discontinued its line of cable modems due to poor sales because they did have the best overoll design, of both the exterior and interior, of any cable modem. When all booted it will start to scan for channels, but will be complaining because the tuner is haco supported, stop this by entering these commands.

Then when power is applied to the modem, the solder will bridge a small connection and destroy a capacitor or two. The firmware image is a ZLIB-compressed www. The port on the left side of Figure shows a vacant RS port, the same type of serial port commonly found on PCs. The JTAG points are however standard. I used a 12v, 1 amp power adapter.


Learning about DOCSIS first will also teach you the vocabulary of cable modems, which will make other chapters in this book less confusing. I advise not putting the modem on stream whilst you do this, it is not needed and will avoid it updating again. Most of the guide I made myself and other bits I found on and around the internet.

By certifying cable modems and the headend equipment, CableLabs has united cable companies by creating a standardized broadband specification.

Enter ‘1’, ‘2’, or ‘p’ within 2 seconds or take default After reading this chapter, you should be able to answer basic questions about what is possible with a cable modem. Within two years, the majority of cable modem manufacturers had begun to offer consumers certified DOCSIS-compliant modems.

Start TFTP, click on settings, and change the output directory to the directory for the firmware image. Another advantage is that service providers can treat HFC nodes as separate transmission facilities, which limits the occurrence of a system The DOCSIS Stcndord 39 failure or a service outage to a single node.

And the default action taken when you exceed these limits can range anywhere from a phone call to your service being terminated. Sorry no source code for you: Switch back to the HyperTerminal window. His article was reposted on many other websites, which caused massive traffic to my own Web- server.

Connect the Cable Step 7: Defeating the Message Integrity Check The fact that the systems of most ISPs had now been patched to prevent this type of uncapping was a challenge to be overcome.

I believed that if I sent a modified copy of this config file to my modem, it would effectively change the bandwidth of my modem. The config file normally contained two different checksums at the end of the con- fig file: This chip has exactly 2MB of nonvolatile memory that will not disappear if it loses power.

Admin Status always 3 8. How it works is by using a method know as handshaking, When you boot your modem Switch it onthe modem will perform some tasks.
