Are looking at new routers or used? You could go with Cisco's small business line.

http://www.cisco.com/cisco/web/solutions/small_business/products/routers_switches/index.html

or

Get a used 1841 or 2800 series router also.

as for content filtering, routers aren't usually purposed for content filtering, but Cisco do now offer IOS Content Filtering through Trend Micro.

Look at the table that shows how many users are supported based on the platform. This may help you decide on which router to get.

Your budget is gonna have to go up if you want all that. My access point, router, and content filtering subscription each individually cost more than $250.

At that price point, you will have to get a cheap DLink, Netgear, Linksys, or Zyxel router with wireless capabilities. Since you won't have much money left, maybe set yourself up a Squid proxy with Dansguardian on it for content filtering. That part is free, you just need an old computer to put it on.

In the world of WAN, QoS is a pretty important topic for most, if not all, networks. Some WAN technologies have QoS mechanisms built in, but others, such as some L2 WAN's, don't have QoS control in the provider cloud.
