FCC Says It's Legal To Hack Your Router

The Federal Communications Commission wants to assure everyone that it is legal to hack your own router...for the most part.

In a blog post entitled Clearing the Air on Wi-Fi Software Updates, Julius Knapp from the FCC tries to clear up any misunderstandings that may exist. He says that the aim is not to stop people from modifying their routers completely, but to stop them from modifying them in ways that would render them illegal -- such as increasing their power beyond a certain level.
