I have some issues with my Actiontec GT701, both on wireless and wired I sometimes have to
ping a server before I can connect (mostly ftp and oscar). That's probably a NAT issue,
though, and as soon as I have a chance I'll look into grabbing more static IP's or start
playing with DMZ.
It's horrid with bittorrent, pretty much bringing down all other traffic on the network.
I imagine the Cisco 827 will be worlds better, or you could get another router and just
use the DSL router as a gateway (or get a plain ol' DSL gateway). If that's important to
you, the network forum over at Ars recently had a thread on bittorrent friendly routers.
