    as the title says im looking for an external device (plugged into my router with ethernet or wireless) for downloading torrents when my laptop is not connected

    maybe an external hdd case which has this feature of whatever you might recommend... ?

    I don't know of anything that can do that, that isn't a normal PC.

    I did see find some info about routers and NAS boxes that support bittorrent, but you'd probably find better info by looking at google yourself.

    Get a cheap PC, install network card and HDD and let it run or just go buy the media.
