I have whatever CL said would work--wireless + 4 LAN ports. I can look it up when I get a chance.
I have one complaint, which is that it doesn't loop internal traffic back to the external IP. So I
have to use a different address for my web server if I'm inside/outside.

I have those. The modem port forwards those 3(4) ports.

Sounds like that is possible but I haven't tried bridging. The 678 will do that. Unless you're
switching to a speed (and thus protocol) the 678 can't handle why do you want to change? (I did
everything else you've listed on a 678 as well.)

These are also easy.
