I seem the drones everyone morning...but getting back tp the leagl aspect of this...who is responsible for illegally downloaded material?  I see one big lawsuit in this.

Given that the router is really a dual router (i.e. 2 separate subnets) and, presumably, Comcast has control over at least the public subnet, I would venture to say that Comcast will have to assume responsibility. I sure wouldn't accept such a router if they didn't.

Doesn't ComCast have a monthly download limit and I assume this would not count towards that?

Not sure if they have caps but they could still enforce it because you have to log in with your Comcast username and password.

If they have one, they don't enforce it...at least not in my area.

My experience, and that of others I've conversed with, is that the cable ISPs don't bother you about caps unless they receive performance complaints from neighbours who are on the same segment as you.
