I'm sure there are some cheap routers out there. If not, and you have
an old machine lying around doing nothing, get a cheap (or two) ethernet
cards, and load Linux on there! Wa-la, instant router!
You might look into those "broadband" routers. I believe they have two
types of ports, one plugs into your cable modem, or external DSL router;
and the other plugs into your computer(s). I'm not too sure you can set
the IP addys in them though (both sides may be DHCP only).
