Linksys actually has some managed switches now that do vlans and also  
have af POE.

You can find them for anywhere from 180 - 350.  The one sitting here  
at my desk in the lab is the SRW208MP.

If you want to stay open source, there's a few options that I know of  
off the top of my head:
xorp.org - runs on *nix - been meaning to play with this one as it  
does bgp and ospf.
freesco is a basic router/firewall.
Linux router project
Open Linux Router - is this the same as LRP now?
Vyatta - is that spelled right? This one is probably more than you're  
looking for.

Somewhere I remember seeing a m0n0router project, but can't go looking  
right now.
