THeir is no easy answer. It depends on what you want. If you want an easy answer, Buy a managend CISCO switch and away you go. Get your self a design plan for your network. ANswer some questions and go from there.

You can use server 2008 as a router of some sort through routing and remote access services. However, I do recommend you check out Cisco routers and switches as well as Juniper and Extreme networks solutions as well.

You just need a good router with built-in firewall

Also if you just want some systems to have internet connectivity and some to not you can use something called a VLAN that makes a virtual seperate network for them and they can be managed easily this way.
