router of firewall suggestions

Does anyone have any good suggestions for a router/firewall that has NAT and keeps a log? It is for home use, and needs no more than 4 ports.

I'd go for a good old Linux box myself but have a look at and search the forum - this seems to have been discussed a few times in the last couple of weeks.

Thanks jharris, I looked it up.

I ended up going to Circuit City, and I bought a D-Link 4-port router/firewall for $100, but I get a $50 mail in rebate. It has NAT, browser configuring, and ip masking. I think that coupled with ipchains and shutting down all non-essential ports will pretty much make sure that MOST crackers (noticed I used the correct term) wont get in.

For the price it is hard to go wrong. I simply do not have the moneyright now to set up another computer, nor do I have the room.
