I am looking for a router that will allow me to have multiple static ip's behind it. I have 3 servers that I need to turn live. one will be a web server, one will be an email server and the other is a file store. What type of hardware setup am I going to need in order to accomplish this?

Currently I have a Comcast business class modem, a Cisco 24 port switch, and a Netgear wireless router. The Netgear router is dishing out the IP's, but I can turn one of the servers into a DHCP server if need-be.   Suggestions on what brand/model router I'm going to need and in which order things get plugged in would be appreciated.

How many static ip's do you have from comcast?  The netgear wireless router can do port forwarding for you.  Since you are wanting to access different services on 3 different machines, you can forward port 25 and 110 (smtp and pop) to the mail server, port 80 and/or 443 to the web server, and port 21 (ftp i assume), to the file store.  You would only need 1 public facing IP to do this.  If you want more functionality than this, you will probably have to get a better router.

I currently have 5 IP's from Comcast but am only needing to use 3. I realize I need a new piece of hardware to handle the traffic, that is what this post is asking for.

I don't know how much traffic you are expecting, but you might be able to get by with a cisco 892 router which still gives you built in wifi.  If you are wanting something more robust, you could go with a cisco 1921 router, or even go with just an asa 5505 or 5510.

Expect to spend $800+ with any of these, except for the asa 5505.  I'm sure there are good offerings out there that are cheaper, but I'm a cisco guy.
