if you ran a direct coax line from your splitter where your cable enters your house to the modem it should make a huge difference. And yes definetly chose a cat5e cable over usb.

unfortunatley depending where your located and how many people in your area are using also can have an affect but i don't think you can do much bout that sorry. I heard of people actually with dsl running faster just cause of where they were located.

actually there are certain mods you can make to your modem that is supposadly illegal. A friend of mine told me about it. It's some sort of cap on bandwidth on your router that when changed can basically give you a much faster connection. But I don't know the full details or if this is actually true. Just thought i would throw this out there. If it is true I assume it's some sort of software flash or hardware mod by soldering.

it works sometimes depends on the modem and the company basically you set up your computer to act like the master server, telling the modem it has unlimited bandwidth and higher priority, then you connect the mdoem to your computer, it thinks it has unlimited bandwidth and performs faster but evry one in the neighborhood recieves lower speed as a result.

Yes, they are there, but if the company catches you, then they don't take to it lightly. A few ideas: Change the MTU packet size in your router to the maximum setting. Run a coax cable directly from the street to your cable modem box, don't even pass go to collect $200. Other ideas, you can modify the route your modem takes to get to an internet backbone w/ out the company flipping on you. Ex: My cable modem box used to go from my city on the east coast (richmond), to California, then to Chicago, then to a backbone, when I live right next to a major one for the east coast. It doesn't make sense, so I looked around a found you can change this. www.dslreports.com has some modem tweaks and in the forums they have how to change the route your modem takes to send data. Other than that...get Fiber It's cheaper for me now and its more than twice the speed.

Edit: w00t! Half a thousand posts. Sounds so big.
