Hi bsjld,
Yes you will need a router and a switch/hub that has enough ports for all of your systems plus the router.

Network will look like this:

Internet === Cable Modem ==== Router =====Switch ===== All other systems.

The type of router you will need is dependant upon the features you want but the basic answer is yes any router would work.

God Bless

Yes, all you need is a broadband router. If you need something that is effective, and not too expensive, here is a common product:

If you want to add up VPN capabilities on your network, you could always set this one up..

If you wanna do this, I would go more for a solution like a PIX 501 from cisco. It's a great little firewall, and has good vpn options.
