I was wondering if it would be possible to add Gigabit networking to the NETGEAR DM200 by modding the physical connectors, since from what I have seen, the chipset (Lantiq VRX220) supports Gigabit speeds, and there is a firmware which supports such speeds, however the DM200 officially supports only up to 100Mbts speeds.

When taking a look at my DM200's board, I have noticed that the Ethernet connector only utilizes 4 out of the 8 pins, while the modem connector only utilizes 2 out of the pins, so I was thinking that it may be possible to solder the other pins (as required, of course), we may be able to "upgrade" the DM200 to Gigabit.

If the DM200 can boot properly with the Gigabit-enabled firmware, and this mod is undertaken, does anyone think that anything may come out of this?
