ok here's what i need which i find hard to come by. i need reading material on how bypass regular home nat routers, software to prevent such a thing for happening, known and reported exploits for commerical home routers like soho and linksys routers.
and it's very important that all information also has a way of blocking or security against such an exploit or hole.
knowing how to do it is great, guarding against it is even better. knowing both gives me best all around security! :-)

so if anyone wants to help. just link me to some reading material. the more the merrier :-D

Can't help you with providing any type of exploits but will help you with security information as it pertains to protecting your home networks while using the above mentioned equipment.

Here is a some for Linksys:

yes i know. lol. i just wish i could ask alot more "in depth" question about computer security. not cus i wanna be a bad ass and destroy company files or hack school computers but, i'm currently a college student. and i'm trying to get into the programming/security business. and although i do know a little about hacking some computers, i know next to nothing compared with what i should know if i wanna be a network security specialist. or start a computer security business, or anything along those lines.

My suggestion to you then is to read, read, read. Something you’re probably used to if you’re still in school. Security consulting is more about telling others what they should do then actually doing it yourself. Not that you shouldn't know how to do it yourself it's just not as important as knowing. Most of the security work that I have done is simply writing documents on how things should be configured and conducting meetings that increase awareness. The staff of the company that I consult for actually puts those changes and recommendations into effect.

I also have a small lab at the house where I practice doing certain things and playing with certain toolzs as well. This will give you a much deeper understanding on not only what it takes to hack but most importantly what it takes to prevent it from happening to your client’s computers and networks.
