You only use BitTorrent for legal downloads, right? Of course you do, but don’t you hate having to leave your computer on overnight in order to get your hands on some of those larger files out there? After all, you’re exposing it to a world filled with hackers, viruses, and worms.

Asus has got you covered. They have just announced the WL-700gE wireless router, which packs in a 160GB hard drive and an integrated iTunes/BitTorrent client, so you can keep your downloads going, but turn your computer off.

That’s right. It can handle up to seven BitTorrent streams automatically (in addition to 10 FTP or web streams), with your computer happily napping away in the other room. The files are stored on the on-board hard drive for later retrieval, as the WL-700gE doubles as a network storage device.

Other stuff you should know: it rocks five Ethernet ports, 64/128 bit WEP, and can take on a “RAID configuration with another drive.” We’re still waiting on pricing and availability deets… quite anxiously, I might add.
