Speaking of setting modems....

I got a way to change the speed of your service through the config files of your modem
(But, myself, I pay for 1.5 mbps, and I get, ehh, 1.5 mbps)

YES. BUT. THATS VERY ILLEGAL. Anyone thinking about doing it, its not hard to do, but not worth having the company come after you for theft of service

Whats nics? Cat5 cable... Umm thats the cable from the tower to the router right?

No not USB. I've got a phone cord looking thing from the router/modem to the back of the computer.

I just have the cable modem... and I wouldn't have the slightest clue as to how change any settings on it.... heck, before I joined this site, I only spent about maybe one hour on the computer every other week
