W2K Pro includes Microsoft ICS (Internet Connection Sharing).  This is a fairly limited implementation but fits the needs of a majority of home/SOHO users.

The good news is that you already have it and it costs nothing extra.  Just install and configure it.

If you need something more sophisticated, I like WinGate from Deerfield.  See www.wingate.net.
