Cheap router with QOS (for VOIP), DSL, and multiple external IP address support?

Can anybody recommend a router for a small office which meets the following requirements:

1) Supports ADSL (or maybe I can run our Netopia/Cayman 3500 in bridge mode???)
2) Can support at least 2 external IP addresses (we host 2 internet domains with a separate email/web server on our network for each domain).
3) QoS (We want to get 4 Vonage phone lines)
4) Cheap
5) VPN would be nice, but not required

I was looking at the Linksys WRT54G with the Sveasoft firmware, but it I couldn't figure out if it would support #2 above.

I don't think any of the low end consumer router/firewall products like the WRT54G will support more than one public IP address.
You might look at the Adtran Netvanta 2000 series, but I don't like the client... and I don't like not getting 24x7 support:

Most of the lower end firewall products will do what you want, but I don't know about the QoS part...
NetScreen, Cisco PIX, Symantec Gateway, SonicWall..
I don't think any of them can be considered 'cheap', but they all have "small business" models that are good value..
