I've been searching the Internet for a few days with no luck for a router board or maker board I can install ZeroShell on that has at least 4 ethernet ports (Preferably 5) and wifi, This would be easy for ARM but ZeroShell doesn't work on ARM.

Some things I've found while searching:

As far as the maker boards, I thought maybe I could find an addon card for the extra ethernet ports. The problem is I need all those ports, wifi, and I need it to be under $150 (Or close). Any ideas?

You can get dirt cheap Intel based NICs from the ebay, if that's an option.
I bought a PCIe 1x Intel based GB NIC for like 6 bucks for my build.
The multiport NICs will ring you more, but still a viable option to a fully integrated mainboard.

Keep in mind that many of these new x86 SOC boards are often designed for Windows 8/10 and use a UEFI without a Legacy BIOS option such as the Latte Panda. Trial an error may be your best approach as it's often difficult to get a response from these cheap manufacturers about such things.
