Hi,

Is it possible to bypass the download limit set by your ISP.
For eg, on a 256 mbps connection with a 500 mb download/upload limit, is there any tool that will allow downloads to not be monitored by the ISP?
I have read of people downloading GB's of stuff on a 500 mb download limit connexion. My ISP uses a RasPPPoe dial up based connexion.
Are there ways to bypass download limits and never let ISP know about it, and not have your account expire?

Thanks
Rame

well, as I know, no...
but you can check out how such controls work, and send fake identity signals to fool the controlling device, and you are done... since I have never thought of it, i don't know any tools,too...

I don't think this is checked on the pc..
I think it's checked in the modem itself, so if you have some electronics skills you might be able to download more than possible..
But don't overdo it cuz you'll get caught if you download 50 Gb a month instead of the normal 500 mb.

do you really believe it is?
because it will be pretty stupid if it is saved in modem and nowhere else... I think the ISPs make strict control for it. but installing a trojan working like a router can allow you to bypass this limit.
BTW, the best is being honest... if you fancy downloading lots of things, then buy a limitless packet and download as much as you can.

ummm

If ya live in Australia, as i do, certain networks, ie, the one im on, allows free data to be transported between the nodes...

Couple my mates decided to exploit this a little more than first thought.

www.peeringsa.net

Pretty much, we all join the irc server .... Free data between ourselves

or emule, connecting to their server and using the ipfilter allows us to download all our files for free

etc etc etc

Now, this IS free data. The ISP's have an agreement on this, and it works out quite well :)

I don't know if that is possible, I'm no expert.. It was just a suggestion.
Everything has to go through your modem first, so why wouldn't you be able to make them believe that only 1/100 of the normal data goes trough it.
That's what I thought.

well I will throw my 2cents in on this one. I read a paper once that explained how to increase your cable modem speed. This was done by editing the .bin file that was downloaded from the server on 1st configuration of the modem. Maybe there is something in this .bin file about limits and such. Sorry I canot remember where I read it.

That was only possible with some cable modems. Data limit controlling isnt done in your modem, when you log in your isp keeps track of your bandwith so you cant fake it unless you have some one else' account

i read up somehwere a while ago that it is easy to uncapp your cable modem if its motorola. there are tutorials and stuff on google on how to uncapp it but it is very ricky. the cable companies are able to track huge download speeds so quickly even if your jsut browsing the net with it uncapped its super stupid and dangerous.

insanity, do these methods still work? when are these documents published? i have heard of them,too, asking just for curiosity, since i am not using a cable modem... but it's weird that the limit is set by cable modems... so i have heard of a method to increase dial-up modem speed, they claimed they have a speed of 128kbps or something, but the modem has to be cooled down... but the best way is to be honest, know your enemy but don't do what he does...

Impossible...Your isp uses a device to control your speed, unless you can physically get in your isp's office where it serves you and change the configurations they set.

no, it was only possible with old motorolla modems to change the actual upload / download speed, but even that was easily caught and punished severely (blacklisting from the ISP). The severe gamble is not worth it.

yes the uncapping modems sites are still around. you should find some in google but i sitll dont suggest you try so. I can't say i have ever heard of uncapping modem lines because they are to slow for anyone to car anyways. anyways if it were to uncapp at that speed i will give you some seroius props, but good luck with it. if you have any other questions about it, let me know.

It is pretty much impossible to bypass your download limit. As each and EVERY packet of data is passed through your ISP, and eventually to you, it is counted. Unless of course you can hack in to your ISP and raise a variable for your limit :P
