Yes, the aforementioned Phobos card. You can get them for around $25 + shipping. On the software level, I don't know enough about networking in IRIX to say if you can actually make it into a router or not. I know from LInux reading that it is probably possible if you run Debian.
I don't want to go trumpeting my horn with unsolicited advice, since your business is your business, but I would not pick an Indy for use as a router. They run much to hot for comfort for something I would want to leave running all of the time, and there are no easy ways to mod them with fans. Furthermore a router would probably be as cheap as a Phobos ethernet card, and a router would probably do everything the Indy could do faster anyway.
What can you do with an Indy today? Honestly not much. Get the Indy Video Option + Cosmo Compress boardset and you could have a half-outdated video catpure rig, as opposed to just the completely outclassed Vino built in video. Actually, IVO can supposedly do quite well, although you're still looking at hours of work encoding those high-quality video files with a processor that is 12 years out of date... You can show your friends the Indy Cam if you have it, confuse the hell out of your pets with it. Alternatively you can still do some light video capture on Vino. Vino capture ability on an Indy can very greatly based on how much RAM you have, and to a lesser extent what CPU. I find with my R4600SC with 128 megs RAM I can capture a consistent 15 fps at 320x240 high-quality mode.
Do not get me wrong, I love my Indy. It's my first and so far only SGI experience. I enjoy tinkering with it much the same way one would enjoy R/C nitro cars, or model trains. It's a hobby, and nothing more. I got my Indy cheap (nearly free). Of course I've soaked about $50 in mods on it so far, with HDD and CPU upgrades, but hey, I'm having fun.
Anyway that is my opinion. I'm no expert on the matter. I don't want to discourage you, but there just aren't many great uses for the Indy these days. In fact, the more reading you do about the Indy, the more you realize that they weren't used by much of anybody. SGI had a lock on 3d design workstations back in the 90s. The Indy was designed to steal the 2d market from Apple. To a minor extent the Indy did succeed, but it was never an extremely popular graphical workstation. The Indy was in for 2 or 3 years, and then was replaced by the (far superior) O2.
If you're a musician, Indys can be used for sound, often times to surprisingly good results. You don't want to do your playback through the onboard speaker though obviously...
So, just my opinion. Hopefully I'm not giving you an idiot lesson- If I did at any point, I apologize.
