    I've just picked up a new Airport extreme and as I have ADSL internet I needed a secondary router/modem. I wanted to something to match the Airport Extreme and I came up with the idea of using an old Lacie Mac Mini hard drive companion as a home for my modem/router. The lacie is designed to fit under a mac mini, but the Airport extreme is the exact same size.

    Router: netgear DG834

    It turned out well I think

    Not really sure why you need two routers one on top of the other, but ok.

    I get my Internet via ADSL. So I have to have a modem to go with my airport. I wish Apple did one with the modem included.

    Yeah, I suspect that apple will never do it though. :(

    Nice hiding of your router :D
