   Buy, rent, steal, ...

 

   You need a router with an Ethernet WAN/Internet port.

 

   Among Netgear models, Rxxxx.  (Also Dxxxx, but those are DSL
modem+router devices, and you don't need the DSL modem section.  But
that type of modem+router typically _does_ have an Ethernet WAN/Internet
port, so, if you see an irresistible bargain on one, ...)

   It's not that easy.  A C7000 is useful with a cable-TV-type ISP, but
not as a general purpose router.
