You're absolutely right, never tried that! I think I can count on one hand the number of times I have torrented something - LOL. Don't have enough time as is to watch all the movies I can buy/rent, play all the games I can buy or mods I can download and load all the CDs I can buy onto my ipod. ;)

I've got a Linksys RVS4000 for my router, and that's connected to a crappy D-Link WBR-2310. Linksys has two connections going to my desktop (one is for port mirroring) as well as one going to one of the two gigabit ports on my 24+2 switch. The last one goes to my WAP (the D-Link). The D-link is connected to my PS2, 360 and laptop (which also has wireless, but wired is faster). The big switch is more for any other computers that happen to be around, like the Sun workstation I'm presently playing around with.
