Replacement of Netgear FVX538v2 with Cisco Router 29xx?

Dear Cisco community,

as my Netgear FVX538v2 router recently died I would like to replace this router by an enhanceable Cisco product. I'm thinking of a Cisco 2901 model that will be connected to the cable modem of my ISP and has to support PPPoE over the WAN port. The Cisco router should provide the following physical interfaces:

+ 2 WAN ports (10/100/1000 Mbps, RJ-45)

+ 8 LAN ports (10/100/1000 Mbps, RJ-45)

+ Serial Port for terminal program access

+ other options the FVX538v2 does provide

Will a Cisco Router 2901 be sufficient to replace a Netgear FVX538v2 device?

What modules do I have to purchase?

What additional licenses (data, UC, Sec?) do I have to pay for?

I'm sorry but it seems to me that I got lost in the Cisco Router product forest ...

Thank you very much in advance for any help and advise!

Best regards
