Network Setup Question

I have 3 computers downstairs, the 148 and the two p3's. I have the 148 connected directly to the internet and want to connect a router to the other ethernet port on my motherboard to plug in the other computers. How can I go about this? The only thing the p3's will need to connect to the internet for is to upload and download new WU's for folding.

i used to have this:

 

LAN -> axp rig (eth0: 100M) -> axp rig (eth1: 100M) -> giga switch ->> 2x PCs (3500: 1000M, 170: 1000M)

 

but then XP ICS stopped working so i got a Linksys router

 

LAN -> router (100M) -> giga switch ->>> 3x PCs (axp: 1000M, 3500: 1000M, 170: 1000M)

 

hardware is best... i used to have an ADSL router when i had a shared house and also in my own flat... ICS can work, but hardware router is just a lot more solid imo

I know it would be best to have a router, but that means I need to buy a new one. My old D-Link is a POS, and my Linksys hasn't worked right since my roommate blew the circuit with a space heater. Any recommendations for a good router?

it would be safer (hardware firewall) and better for connectivity...

 

to just go....modem to router...then router off to each computer....

perfect connectivity (no loss in speed) and now your systems are invisible to the outside world

 

i say router.
