    Hey guys.

    I need to buy a new router/modem, and i was just wondering which you would recommend, lets say of a price of under £70.

    I'll have my PS3 and Wii hooked up to, and a few laptops, but most importantly i need it to be good with downloading torrents and stuff form other p2p's?

    what do you think?

    I have a Linksys WRT54GL (make sure you get the GL, the WRT54G is crap, the L at the end is very important!) it seems to have no difficulty with torrenting wirelessly.

    No, it's just a router. It's usually best to get a separate modem and router, most of the combined units are, well dire.

    Well, I had a D-Link DSL-G604T which may be similar, but it stopped working after a while.

    Hmm yeah, thing is, it took so long to decipher that it was faulty, I couldn't really be bothered after that!
