Router suggestions

After a bit of leg (finger?) work, I have identified this click here
as my choice. I am after a wired adsl router/firewall/print server. Does anyone have experience of this model or comments or suggestions for alternates ?

I bought a Belkin router from Maplin and it works very well, letting me use the internet on my works laptop [W2K] & my own PC [Home XP] - although it does not come with a printer option ....

Works well enough for me though!

It's the way to go - ipcop & an old PC pretty near bullet proof it has it's own operating system & a great way to use that old pc you have been using as a footrest. Also it dosen't go tits up when thing get a bit busy.Once it is set up you don't need a monitor or keyboard you can do any maintenance, upgrades etc. over the network.
