The Dlink can be easly upgraded; I can't find an english page now, but I guess
you'll find all the info that you need googling a bit.
It has gig nic, 2 disk and a bittorrent client. If you want you can add other
clients (like mldonkey) on a kind of chrooted environment and with a bit of
hacking you can also install a full Debian inside (but this involves soldering
a serial interface, for what I can understand), is quiet and is quite flexible
on the configuration even on the standard configuration.
I just saw one yesterday, and looked interesting; the owner is fully satisfied.
