    Im going to get a new router for my home. My current router is constantly shutting off, and no matter what i do, cannot get it configured correctly for torrents.. Could this be why my downloads go so slow with torrents?

    My needs are: 5+ wired ethernet ports, plus wireless N.. I do not know of any routers with more than 4 wired ports in it. Should i buy one wireless router that has 4 ports in it, and then buy a second regular router to plug into that? Is that my best option?

    Give some suggestions for new routers, maybe ones that are torrent friendly?;) I know I can get the settings right, but i think the router (netgear) is defective, which is why I am not wasting my time getting the settings right.

    After going through like five routers in the past six years, I've pretty much decided that the Apple Airport Extreme N station is the best router yet. Very torrent friendly, as well as web server friendly!
