Hi All, After either an ADSL 2+ modem or a router that will allow me to connect one or two external hdd's for bit torrent downloading; Any recommendations? The Netgear DGND3700 looks pretty good but would like to see what you guys recommend. Cheers.

Off hand don't know of any routers or modems with inbuilt torrent clients. However a quick google suggest the Asus WL-700gE may do what you want.

Can't the DD-WRT homebrew firmware have a torrent client added? I seem to recall seeing that somewhere but I can't find it again.

Think it may be the Tomato version that can have that, although you still need a router that can accept a usb external hard drive.

Hmmm...no, I don't think Tomato has it; at least, the doco doesn't mention it. Besides, Tomato has been posted to far less routers than DD-WRT.

I can't find mention of torrent clients in the DD-WRT doco, either, so scratch that idea as a useful suggestion.

I just grabbed the Asus RT-N15U router for my sisters home business/office. So far, so very very good. Her house/office is multi-level and my previous attempts with Apple's Airport Extreme failed hard! The N51 can support up to 4 separate SSID's which is great as she has her own personal SSID, her business SSID and a guest SSID that has no access to anything else on the network. The signal range is great, as I've been able to remove the repeaters from upstairs. Also, I've been able to make a "makeshift" NAS by hooking up an external 2TB hard drive to the USB ports on the router, which makes sharing all their work junk obviously easier. Also setting up the printer with the router was dead simple.

As for the torrent downloading, I havent tested that, but the router has surpassed my expectations so far, so maybe have a look. - http://www.asus.com....Routers/RTN15U/

EDIT: Also just found this. $20 Visa card redemption - http://event.asus.co...12/cashback15u/

Just put mine in!

I like DD-WRT. Used it my my Cisco WRT120N which crapped out and wouldn't connect to the net. Flashed with their firmware and it's been great since. I've used the Cisco X3000 recently. Seems pretty decent.

Fritzbox maybe? I've been very impressed with mine. Easy to use, stable as, very well featured.
