The BEFSR11 (or the BEFSR41 with 4 ports instead of one, if you don't have
a hub and need more than one machine hooked to your network).
The name is "EtherFast 1-Port Cable/DSL Router". It's a NAT firewall that
handles up to 253 people behind it. We use them at our remote locations,
and we also give them away to any employee that has broadband access at
their home (so come work for HAHT!).
They are wonderful little devices, and have really made my job of securing
our remote sites much easier.
