They do make models with what you are requiring, although I belive you
will have to take 2 WAN (serial) ports. The 2507 and the 2514 (I belive
those are the right numbers), both have 2 serials and ethernet ports on
them. The 2507 has 8 and the 2514 has 16. We used to use a 2507 and did
exactly what you are speaking of. Never had a single bit of problem with
