Router. Then you get another firewall with the deal. They start in the $50 to $70 range and often better deals are available with vendor rebates, close-outs, etc. I have a wired/wireless NetGear that cost about $65.

I'd check with Gotrootdude,; he is always coming up with deals. Also, look here

BTW...nice job on your site. (y)

If you want Internet sharing, the router is the clear choice. I recently bought the wireless router I'm using for $15 after rebates, it's a D-Link DI-614+. If there is no Internet sharing involved, the switch is all you need, and a router would do you no good.
