Do you want the SOHO subnet to have wifi access too?

Either way, something like a Mikrotik RB951G-2HnD will do the trick
nicely - one wifi interface, one GigE WAN interface, four GigaE LAN
interfaces, all separately configurable, groupable, bridgeable -
whatever. And a massive feture set behind them.

For your specific case, put the Internet on ether1. Put the wifi subnet
on wlan1. Set up the SOHO network on ether2. Leaves you ether 3, 4 and 5

If you want wired access for the SOHO network, bridge ether3 to ether2,
get a cheapie AP and plug it into ether3.
