I haven't picked a router yet. Don't really have a strong requirement for wireless. I want gigabit ports/switch. I'm looking at a Linksys WRT350N maybe.

What I want to do is assign different subnets to the lan ports. For example:
eth1: 10.0.0.0/255.255.0.0
eth2: 192.168.0.0/255.255.0.0
(WAN): 172.16.0.0/255.255.0.0
etc.
I'm assuming if I get the above I would also get the ability to configure static routes pointing to the egress interface instead of some IP address?

Will DD-WRT give me this capability?
Is it dependent on the hardware?

Yes,it's doable with a Broadcom based device. Almost all routers have a 5 port switch.

The Linksys WRT350N V1 is a Broadcom. Watch out for the Linksys WRT350N V2 that have a Marvell chipset.

Many modern atheros can do it as well, but not through the GUI. I haven't tried (no reason to yet), but I've seen someone successfully do it. It'd be much easier on broadcom though. I'm much more familiar with atheros, but I've heard many people that use both say that broadcom is better for routing, qca has better wireless radios.
