    banned Hmmm

    Well I thought this would be a nice forum to ask if anyone knows a nice DOCSIS3.0 modem that isn't dumbed down for people that would call their ISP and ask why the send and recv LEDs are blinking. (Everyone here seems to know what the best modems are.) One of the best features of my modem was that the LEDs would only light up when there was activity, thus I could therefore see when my PC was using the internet due to background services, or if someone was stealing my wifi. I've looked at as many modems as I could find and they all have upstream and downstream LEDs that stay lit when the service is available....However I've read through the rules of the forum and see that questions from new people that most likely won't stay aren't welcome. I'd like to say you have a lovely forum here and hope it doesn't die out! (: I might stay for a while if there's a way to monitor activity just by putting a set of LEDs in between the modem and the Client and report my progress.About being a leecher, to my knowledge of leeches, they feed on you while benefiting you at the same time. Isn't that supposed to be good? I suppose that posts like these are good by bringing a bit of activity from long time members.P.S. I'm from Ontario.

    If you contribute, I am sure people (including myself) will have suggestions.

    If you wanna leech first then give, I don't think this is going to work.

    Well.. no one has made a new thread in the cable modem hacks forum for a few months so yeah... it'd be sad if the community is dying.I have to say though, I don't like how some parts of this community are pay to win. (saw that donating for VIP member unlocks hidden parts?)

    I'm experienced in removing malware and speeding up windows installations.

    A massive failure in the understanding of how this forum works, it's been here 15 years so a little arrogant to join and judge.

    If my memory serves me correct, I was happily a member for a year before becoming a VIP.

    The VIP system allows the forum to give something back to those that have financially helped keep the place running (notice the lack of ads?). There are plenty of long standing members who are not VIP's who have helped others and have received plenty of help in return.


    So now you mention your experience with malware and speeding up windows which leads me to believe you probably are reasonably familiar with various aspects of modern PC's and windows.

    Why not find active threads to contribute to, or even create a thread or two with some tips or guides.

    Doing this you will probably find you can quickly build up some quality posts and thanks, then I am sure members will want to help you.

    Or you can keep moaning in this thread and wonder why your account is eventually terminated.

    I'm glad you enjoy my moaning.I must apologize, when I originally came upon this forum from a search engine, I thought it was only about cable modems ... tvs... etc. I found the interesting networking sections and there is so much great information! I feel embarassed by my previous comments now. Yes I see the VIP section is not entirely pay to win. Wankers made me laugh hehe.I love that the admins of this site don't host hidden trackers (beacons) on here. That's really great.

    Sorry about the double post, I can't edit my posts. As for being close to 10 posts on my first day, I hope this isn't looked at negatively. Is there someplace in the forums where I can start a discussion about the actions of a large company? Or is that looked down upon here?
