#1 While I am not the programmer who made/supports that tool, I can tell you what I know.

#2 The program captures the following data from the router:

a) What the router's UI looks like (screen shot)

b) HTML Code ( the code that makes the webpage / site work )

#3 The program does not change the existing firmware.

#4 If your router is a cable modem combo (cable modem and NAT router as one unit), the router firmware is general controlled by your ISP.

Hi, my query is simple,
 can i overwrite the router firmware with alternative firmware and make it works?
      modem combo routers are even sold by Third parties also like dlink.
        I know that the program does not touch the firmware.
          Can i download from elsewhere, like dd.wrt site etc.
            i do not find any firmware in the name of teracom

Maybe or maybe not.

It would be better to find the firmware and see (ask as need be) if the firmware will work on your router.

For example if you wanted to know if DD-WRT would work on your router, it would be better to ask the people over at http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/

OR even at DSLR (dslreports.com) -> Forums -> Equipment Support -> Hardware By Brand -> Other Manufacturers
