Impending Doom: No Network Access

The Sun Netra which I use as my internet gateway is dying.

This means that I'll soon have no internet access from home. (Read "at all", since I'm not working right now)

I've been looking out for a decent 8-port gateway, there aren't a lot of choices if you want more than 4 ports. But I figure I can get rid of the netra + switch and combine a hardware router to save space and noise.

Netgear's FVS318UK model looks like a good fit, eight port and with IPsec stuff built in. Added it to my wishlist, I guess I'll need to get one soon, or find an alternative.
