Most ISPs will sell you a "free" USB modem with their long-term plans. 
Other (more honourable ISPs) will sell you a modem/router/4-port-switch 
for between $90 and $300 separate to their plans.

Personally, I'd prefer to set up my Linux router with a PCI internal 
ADSL modem, and an Orinoco wireless card. I'd love something like the 
XC-Cube from AOpen, but it only has 1 spare PCI slot :( Otherwise it's 
ideal - nice and quiet, and looks like a household appliance :)
