    If you go with AT&T, you may very well regret it. And don't listen to FUD about Comcast. They DO NOT block port 80, and they DO NOT interfere with BitTorrent any more, due to the FCC stepping in.
    anything with a cap sux.

    BTW- If you want a router go for a Linksys, they can be set-up online rather than via a Windows-only CD.
    i would not call 700kb/s and a cap for total downloads wonderful. try 1900kb/s and no limits. that is wonderful. (cablevision)

    i agree with the linksys thing. they even make a router with linux on it.

    What Linux do you run that has 8GB of updates per month?

    If you run the same Linux distro on each computer on a network, you can theoretically use one of them as a local repository, requiring each update to be downloaded just once (rather than 4 times).
