Not meaning to start any flames... but i can strongly suggest _AGAINST_
D-Link Broaband Routers... (Especially the 504...). I personally have had
bad experiences with them, and so has many other people i know of who have
My 504 is in Bridge mode (acts like a normal modem with a switch)
and FreeBSD acts as the router because it hanging (literally) 1-2 times a
day randomly plus if you ever try to use any features of MSN Messenger
that create a direct connection among other things (including Torrent
clients/etc) isn't acceptable for me...
