What and where would you guys recommend for a router for me to buy to network 1.5M/384K ADSL between 4-5 computers?

at those speeds, anything. NetGear seems to be the most popular.

Mind you, a router isn't generally all that cheap...but you can stick with a 10MBPS speed one, and you'll be fine.

Many people have been getting Netgear, Linksys, etc. I haven't heard any complaints.. Of course, I'm using my 2000 box with some software to do the NAT for me. Make sure that if you need PPPoE that the little box supports it. Some do, some don't. 3

The real secret is to go and check out their support Web page. Are they doing updates often, or do they release a product and move onto the next one.

Most of the DSL/Cable modem router/firewall boxes can be had for about $100 - $150 depending on the sales from CC, BestBuy, or CompUSA. Check www.Salescircular.com for the sales. Right now Circuit City has a Netgear on Sale.. http://www.salescircular.com/nh/computer/hubp.shtml

Like, Jimmy Jamma and Ken said, a linksys or netgear router/firewall box will be good enough for you. If you're adventurous you could try and run a linux/*BSD box to do the same. You can buy a whole computer used for ~$99 that would do the trick. I just picked up an old Compaq deskpro P166MMX with a NIC and 128m of ram for that much. I'm using it as the firewall/router for my cable connection at the moment

The other plus to using the "little box" is power consumption. Something none of us think about till we get the electric bill.. My wife has been complaining about my dual P2, 10K HDDs Server and what it does to our electric bill running 24x7. Of course, it gave me a good reason to upgrade my box to a 1.2Ghz AMD and take my single processor K6 with one large HDD and use that as my new server... heh.

So, the little boxes do a good job with NAT (allows you to run multiple computers on one IP) and basic packet filtering (keep the bad guys out). Using a real box gets you additional logging, software of your own choice (Zonealarm, Winroute, etc), plus FTP server, etc. Just sucks up more juice.
