I'm using a BT Voyager 240 (which is a rebranded box from someone else
-- based on Broadcom firmware, IIRC). It seems to do the job well
enough. You don't need to spend much money on it -- after all, you're
looking to turn off most of the features that others would use in a
router. I've done the same thing with cheap D-Link routers, too
(although I can't remember the specific model number).

wrong tool for every job. -- Bruce Eckel
