what you're looking for is an adsl2+ wireless modem router... the 4-port switch is pretty standard

 

generally I've had better experience with Linksys routers... all the Netgear routers I've had, have had problems maintaining a connection under heavy load (even after various firmware updates), and the GUI/features are a bit rubbish compared to Linksys

Contrary to what hardng said, I have nothing but praise for netgear products.

 

Especially the Netgear DG834G. Have had one at my student house for about 3 years now, and not ONCE has it dropped the connection. Got another 1 at my GFs place, and another 2 at other locations. NEVER had any problems.

 

Ill agree that the GUI is muggy and difficult to follow sometimes, but once you get past that, its very very solid.

 

Haven't got much bad to say about Linksys either, there GUI is defiantly more user friendly. However, I did have a Linksys just pack up on me. So there track record with me is not as good as Netgear's.
