Hardware, Embedded Systems The D-Link DNS-323 is a bargain-priced, consumer-grade network storage enclosure, similar to countless others. It's made of cheap plastic, has uninspired design, and a clunky web-based management interface. It's also brilliant, and if you have any hacker in you at all, you should buy one.

You would be much better with a mini-itx server and the ADSL modem on top of it. You could do anything with it: router, firewall, torrent client, nas, dns cache, proxy.

Half assed solutions like these modem-routers with so little memory and storage exist because they are really cheap for mass market, and most people don't need more. Except when they try to download stuff with bittorrent or other p2p and then these little routers start crashing or dropping packets.
