bitTorrent Wireless Router

Though some Internet users would be loathe to admit it, BitTorrent is a driving force of the Internet. In numerous cases, torrents actually make up the majority of traffic on some Internet providers and network backbones. Asus' new WL-700gE router is designed expressly for those BitTorrent enthusiasts who download so often that they need more than just a computer left on overnight. In addition to four Ethernet ports and 802.11g wireless, the 700gE has its own BitTorrent client that can not only download as many as seven torrents to its built-in 160GB hard drive while your computer is off, but can also be accessed remotely to either queue new torrents or download files through the built-in FTP server. A USB 2 port makes sure you can add additional drive space. At $500 it's an expensive but ultimately more efficient alternative to a dedicated download computer.
