Book review: Hacking the Cable Modem

Anonymous Reader writes “Many people who have been involved with the more technical aspects of home computers have at least heard of things like cable modem “uncapping” or “hacking.” Some may have even tried to do it once or twice. Before now there hasn’t been a comprehensive guide to modifying cable modems — just an array of tutorials and small programs scattered around the Internet. No Starch Press’ Hacking the Cable Modem is an attempt to satisfy the documentation needs of cable modem hackers everywhere. Unfortunately, none of the information in this book is at all useful to people who aren’t either designing cable modems or intending on executing the hacks, which even the author says will get you in trouble with either your ISP or the police.”
