  1. Router, unless you can get multiple global IPs from your ISP.

    This would block direct external access to the machines.

    If you have a fixed IP address from your internet provider, you MAY be able to purchase additional public IP addresses for additional servers. IF that is the case, then you could use a switch between the modem and the servers.
