    hello,

    i stupidly ordered a Linksys WRT54GS specifically for its handling of bittorrent (ie, lots of connections)

    but forgot to look at the features and realised it dosnt have a modem, but i have also been informed that having a separate modem is actually a plus point, anyway, ill get to the point here...

    So, now what modem should i buy? im looking for something quite cheap and simple, BUT obviously it need to be able to handle bittorrent and multiple connections very well, as my current Belkin router makes http browsing very painful.

    please give me any advice on this, because i feel really stupid just sitting here looking at this cool linksys box here without being able to use it :rolleyes:

    thanks in advance.

    You could try using your current router as just a modem, it might work better with the Linksys handling routing duties.

    I don't really have any experience with ADSL 'pure' modems but the Linksys ADSL2MUE would stack nicely with it :D
