Low end router alternative?

Technically speaking, the port is definitely not a HSSI port.  

HSSI is ~ 52mbps and used for DS-3 and E3.  You're probably looking for
a v.35 interface, EIA-422/485, or similar interface to match your CSU.

Well 2 minutes on Froogle tell me your definition of cheap and mine
match. For the same price range I would get a netopia R4522 or 5300
will reliably do NAT and all.

With a little more research, I think I can better clarify that I'm
for just about any router (<$50-100) that has a HSSI port and an RJ45
port. For what I'm looking for at the moment (experimenting)
used/refurbished doesn't matter so long as it works.
