Look at one of the pre-configured distributions like SMEserver 
(http://www.contribs.org) or clarkconnect (http://www.clarkconnect.com) 
for your gatway machine if you have to run it on a computer (or choose 
to because you want to have services (email/ftp/web, etc.) on it.  If 
you don't know what you are doing you'll probably miss something in the 
firewall setup.

But I'd recommend looking around for a good price on a home router.
