    define cheap?
    i got a USR 8054 b/g with a 4 port ethernet router. it works pretty good and was about $100 at the time of purchase.
    it works well for me.
    i have 2 macs (b and g) and a pc (b) on the network.

    This is the one I've been using:

    SMC 2804

    Works fine, there are newer models, but this serves my purpose quite well. There's a version with a built-in Printserver as well.


    Oh, and I'm using it on a mixed Mac-PC network.

    netgear wgr 614v2

    amazon.com is apparently cheap (after rebates)

    i use it at home to connect 1 desktop, network laser printer through a ethernet bridge, cable modem, 1 pc laptop by PCMIA wireless b card and soon an ibook via APX

    i have had no issues at all with it
