I likewise just ordered some Linksys products, a 4port Hub/router with
802.11B Wireless DSS capability and a USB compatible Network Interface.
This is far more expensive than $60 but the Router will provide a
firewall. In addition, there are 4 ports on this model and with having
the USB compatible Network Interface, I have the capability to have a
floating intergface to network any PC in the household which supports
I found pretty good prices at:
http://www.buy.com and no shipping charges.

Netgear but i've seen that these aren't as well documented and since
Linksys provides a web-based interface for configuration purposes which
seems more accessible to a Screen Reader.
although Linksys costs a little more, I felt it was the better choice.
One more comment, the Firmware can be upgraded free by merely downloading
new software whenever it's available.
The Linksys products now support 128-bit wep encryption as well.
There are a few different types of Network Interfaces available for
Linksys, D-Link Systems and Netgear.
