  You can set it up as a router on a stick (in Cisco speak).  To max out
  a gig E interface, you'd need a high end P4 box, but that pales in
  price to a Cisco that'll do gig E wire speed.

  I haven't extensively tested the VLAN functionality, but it should
  meet your needs.  I'd definitely give it a shot.
