You need an gateway device which can be a standalone router or an computer running special software. Depending what is your expectations about this device you may take a look at some soho routers from Linksys (the cheap solution and the simple one) or you may buy a more powerful device like Cisco routers. If you want to use a dedicated computer for this service I advice you to use a Linux SO specially designed for router service, like IPCop or SmoothWall
