Dear Craig,
My problem is find such numbers n that expression

((3 + 2 Sqrt[2])^(2^(n - 1) - 1) - (3 - 2 Sqrt[2])^(2^(n - 1) - 1))/(4 Sqrt[2])
is divisable by (2^n - 1)

or another words (2^n - 1) is divisor of ((3 + 2 Sqrt[2])^(2^(n - 1) - 1) - (3 - 2 Sqrt[2])^(2^(n - 1) - 1))/(4 Sqrt[2])

My procedure 
Do[ If[IntegerQ[Expand[((3 + 2 Sqrt[2])^(2^(n - 1) - 1) - (3 - 2 Sqrt[2])^(2^(n - 1) - 1))/(4 Sqrt[2])]/(2^n - 1)],   Print[n]], {n, 1, 17}]

is extremaly slow (probably Expand function do that as aslowly but without Expand we don't have integers. I don't have idea how improove them.
Best wishes
Artur
