Then you probably want a Netopia PN660. v.35 serial port, NAT, RJ45 
Ethernet, etc. They can't be upgraded with a Netopia OS later than 2 years 
ago due to flash and RAM limitations so they have limited VPN capability, 
but they work great for what they are. You can get them for < $25 on eBay.

This one is currently $9.99.


DO NOT buy a PN630/640 or any other model except the PN660 since that is 
the only one which will work for your specs. I would have given you one, 
but I threw them away a few months ago.
