I want to buy a router - need advice

I want to buy a dedicated router for the network of the company where I work.
I don't want a linux router.

The description of the network:
- ADSL (cca 3000 Kbs) connection with the outside.
- 1 public IP
- one internal network (192.168.*.*) - I don't need it to do advanced routing (OSPF, EIGRP etc)
- the internal network has cca 50-60 computers.
- I don't want it to act as dhcp, nat, etc server. For this I have a rhel server.

I am very interesting in filtering. I want the router to filter based on protocol, port, ip. Logging would be nice.

What do you recommend??

I've got an older Linksys 4 port wireless router that I've been using for a couple years - I've never had a problem with it, and it will filter outside traffic on all 3 of the criteria you mention, and it does have limited logging capability. I run both Linux and Windows machines on my network, and everything gets along just fine.
