Low Cost: Linksys Router with Firewall option.

More Reliability slightly higher cost: I'd actually suggest the
Speedstream that we've been talking about (or a similar model) as it
already has packet filtering in it by default.  It costs more but it's a
fully configurable business class router/firewall.  Good for most services
without a problem.

More Cost and Even Bigger Beef: A Cisco PIX firewall.  It's basically a
specialized PC but it has almost no moving parts - I think there's a fan
in the power supply but that's it - and it works damn well.

It all depends on the size of the network in question and what type of
incoming connection you're using.
