    Jyuu, I have a question about this link. It seems very interesting, very powerful.

    Ok, please tell me if I am looking at this wrong:
    Lets say you have a basic set up. 1 router with a computer wired into, 2 or so computers using the wireless.

    Now, this is what I think your link says:
    Use a old, throwaway computer, hooked to the router, and have the original three computers connected to the internet wirelessly.

    Is that what your link says, or am I reading it wrong? I want to make sure before I try it...

    No, you turn a router and a PC into a Linux router. You can many computers on wireless and a handful on wired.
    If you want to mess with a router, I would suggest you to get a Linksys WRT54G of the fourth generation. The 5th and 6th generation ones are not as easy to flash up/down.

    The problem is, I just got the D-Link DGL 4300(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833127158) two days ago, after seeing all the good reviews on it.

    Trouble is, as your link mentions, my router slows the internet to a crawl when I use torrents. As the link Steal provided doesn't support my router, I was left with the option you listed.

    Do you think that your link would do well with that router, or is there another thing I can try, or should I just give up, and only use torrents at night?

    Ooh easy.
    Use port 6882 for your BT client and open the ports 6881-6890 on your router. It's close to the port that MSN Messenger uses and there's less chance of throttling.

    Yeah, seems to work a lot better, thanks. I had followed portforward.com's directions, and changed it from 6882. Seems that wasn't such a good idea...
