A router is the usual way.  A layer 3 switch does some
routing operations and would probably work too.  If you
are looking for a cheaper way, you can stick the number
of NIC's you need in a fedora box (which would make the
discussion relevant here) or you can combine a router
with a small number of VLAN trunk capable interfaces with
a switch that also understands vlans and make it look
like each switch port is a router port.  However with that
last way the routing speed is limited by the trunk
interface where everything is combined.
