I use an alix2d3 running embedded pfSense as a 3 NIC (WAN, LAN, DMZ) 
router. If you only need 2 NICs go for the alix2d2. You can also add two 
mini-PCI WiFi cards to the 2d2 (or one to the 2d3) should you want WiFi 
as well.

I think you can get these from a supplier in the US as well, but someone 
else will have to tell you who.

In the dungeons of Mordor, Sauron bred Orcs with LOLcats to create a
new race of servants. Called Uruk-Oh-Hai in the Black Speech, they
were cruel and delighted in torturing spelling and grammar.
