    Depends... One Public IP on WAN side and several private IPs on LAN? Most likely you want Gateway. I'm thinking that if you wanted Router you would already know it.

    Gateway = routing with Network Address Translation (NAT), aka IP masquarading
    Router = routing only, no NAT

    Machines on the LAN don't know/see a difference.
