ASUS WL-700gE Router – Download torrents with PC turned off

The ASUS WL-700gE includes a 160GB 3.5" hard drive as well as a BitTorrent client that can keep those downloads going while your PC is switched off.

The hard drive is easily user-upgradeable... just pop the lid of the case, and install like any other drive. The only catch is that the router software is on the hard-drive, not in ROM, so you'll have to clone the contents of the supplied hard drive onto a new hard drive before installation.

Because the Bittorrent client is actually embedded in the wireless router, the BitTorrent transfers don't go over WiFi, which means your WiFi LAN speeds won't be compromised by heavy P2P traffic.
