I've got a Zoom DSL modem that is just sitting waiting for someone to come
and get it. I could probably let it go for $25 or so.

I bought it to evaluate it as an alternative to Actiontec and Cisco modems.
While it does NAT very nicely and has lots of cool features, it will not
route for a public subnet like a Cisco or Actiontec will. In your case, it's
perfect. In my case, not so much.

I think I've got some filters too.
