Any decent firewall/router should be capable of what you are
requiring, from entry level cisco routers to Checkpoint to Juniper to
Sonicwall to... the list is pretty long ;)
If the only requirement is being able to handle/configure two wan
links and basic ACL's, you have a lot of options and can choose any
relatively mainstream firewall and base your decision primarily on cost.
If there are other needs such as IDS/IPS, VPN support, QoS, vlan's
etc, that will narrow the field a little bit.

I'm investigating the purchase of a hardware firewall. I'm hoping

I've got two separate connections, one to a individual server and
one to a small LAN of several servers. The need for the two separate
incoming pipes is because we're billed individually for the
bandwidth usage. I would rather buy one box that can handle both of
these connections instead of two boxes, mainly to ease the
administration but this isn't essential.
This should make sense, thanks,
