ODROID-XU4 lacks the features you marked as optional but has everything you require and is sold for $74 at the time of writing (with worldwide shipping) on hardkernel website, though the shop link doesn't seem to work. Anyway, it can be easily found on eBay and similar sites.
Have you considered a low-end NUC for that use case?
Probably too late here, but I have the exact same use case and wanted to share my solution and see if you managed to find an alternative. After looking around and finding no single board alternatives, I've come across some lower end NUCs that may work for the task, like the Gigabyte GB-BACE-3000 Brix. It'...
Most home/consumer gateway devices (commonly called routers) will not be able to handle this volume of traffic.
One alternative to consider is products from Ubiquiti Networks as they have several that should fit your need and the prices compare with consumer type products (there are others besides what I list, check their site if you want more detail).
I recommend the ASUS RT-AC66U. It's been rated by SmallNetBuilder to handle 835Mbps download:
This is one of the higher through puts I've seen personally.
Additionally, it has:
Up to 450Mbps wireless speeds on 802.11n
Up to 1300Mbps wireless speeds on 802.11ac
Concurrent dual band transmissions so you can get up to 450+1300 for a total of 1.65Gbps ...
The only professional tool I know of that somewhat fits this need is the Fluke Networks LinkSprinter. The general operation is that they provide the results to the cloud service (and/or email), but you can can connect to them wirelessly and view the results in a web browser. The 200 and 300 models also have an Android application.
Now, I will say that these ...
MSI H81M-P33 LGA 1150 Intel H81 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Here's what you get with a $45.99 price tag:
-6 USB ports (4x2.0, 2x3.0)
-Compatible with Core i7 / i5 / i3 / Pentium / Celeron (LGA1150)
-DDR3 1600/ 1333/ 1066 RAM

It comes with a standard ...
Due to the fact that this is novelty on the market, it would be not that easy to find exacly what you want but Elgato Thunderbolt Dock is relatively close. We can expect that they will release similar model with Thunderbolt 3.
Two Thunderbolt 2 ports
Built-in HDMI port
Built-in Gigabit Ethernet
Three USB 3.0 ports
There's apparently NUC style passively cooled machines meant for displays that would work.
Discourse uses something very similar internally
I've been toying with buying one of these and it probably ticks off most of your boxes - intel ethernet, and 4 ports (realtek's a pain). I've run linux on a very similar platform. With the right variant, you got USB 3....
I've used 3 different flavours of Ethernet over power. Apparently it's seriously dependant on your household power line quality, and other devices.
Once I got it dialed in (and got slightly newer models than my homeplug AV 200 units), its fast and more importantly very reliable.
More expensive adaptors support newer 'faster' standards, and practically ...
These are the two routers which match your requirements and these were released recently. These are tri-band routers which do not reduce speed even when multiple devices are connected to the same network i.e A tri-band router is literally hosting two separate 5 GHz networks, and it automatically sorts devices into different networks. This offers more speed ...
I have used Devolo dLAN 200AVs extensively in my UK home for about five years now, and they are great.
I have about six of them, all single Ethernet port (multiport versions, which three Ethernet ports, are available). I have not found this to be a problem, because I have switches/hubs in most rooms, anyway.
They have UK plugs, not US plugs, but none of ...
Note: Typical docking station has 2-4 USB ports, sometimes 5-6.

There is the x86 ODROID-H2 SBC which comes with 2 x 1 GBit ethernet, 2 x SATA, 2 x USB 3.0 (4 USB ports in total), 1 x M.2 NVMe and more.
As of 2018-12, it's sold for $ 111.
It's based on the Intel Celeron J4105 platform (CPU is soldered) and has 2 empty DDR4 SO-DIMM slots.
When using the SATA ports you need special SATA power cables.
Well I looked around the web, and I found these options:
The Rock64 or the RockPro64 are good options.
As for today, these are the only ones with USB 3.0 from Pine64.
You could also choose to buy a Odroid.
I recommend checking the wikipedia page seeing what model suits the best your needs. You can find without any problem a case on amazon.
Check this board "atmega328" with serial port around $2 / without serial port $1.5 on aliexpress
A wireless shield will cost you around 1.5$ also on aliexpress
Or this little guy ESP8266 the newer one for $1.70
Here is a project about ESP8266
RFID reader around $1.70, 6 DATA PINS and 2 for VCC, GND from here
If you are using Linux there is something called USB over IP. There are is even a tutorial on setting it up on Raspberry Pi. So grab a 30$ single board computer and you are done. There was some Windows effort on this but it seems dead now.
Otherwise if the distance is not that big and your computer (a notebook presumably) supports it I would look into USB-C ...
I first used "rugged ethernet connector" for search terms, but changed to "industrial ethernet connector" after seeing those terms in the search results.
The above photo is courtesy of TE Connectivity, but other links appeared from the search, which may be better suited or less expensive, or easier to find.
This TE model certainly appears rugged and ...
The Huawei E5788u-96a is a LTE router with CAT16 speeds
Another option is the Huawei H112-372
Seems that Huawei, Netgear, and HTC are the only companies at the moment that make gigabit LTE routers.
You can use normal WiFi Access Point routers for this.
The one I use is the Foscam N300. It works great for both ends of this application.
Just don't use the WAN ports unless you also intend to create a subnet.
-- Unless it has built-in bridging that actually works. I have tried several brands that claim to work but in practice they get confused.
Absolute lowest price I could bring one down for is 185.73. You'll notice that regardless of your low port requirement this switch has 24 ports. This just happened to be cheaper than switches with lower port quantities. I suspect that 10-Gigabit switches are only really used in enterprise level applications as you are unlikely to actually pass the Gigabit ...
Google's giving me something close-ish as a first hit ("ethernet KVM switch" was what I used):

I think you are looking for port replicator or docking station. It is useful for laptops/tablets but for fixed PC the cable ties/velcro is better option. And probably a box to put the cables in ;)
Was looking at this also, found a USB NIC from Cypress, http://www.cypress.com/products/ez-usb-gx3-superspeed-usb-30-gigabit-ethernet-controller . In the datasheet it says
Supports IEEE 802.1Q VLAN tagging and 2 VLAN ID filtering; received VLAN Tag (4 bytes) can be stripped off or preserved
So assuming there is a dongle using this chip and that the ...
One alternative would be to use an internal Ethernet add-on card. It's a lot better than the USB solution usually...
One (very cheap) example:
Advantages to other solutions:
works with most motherboards
better speed than USB 2.0 options
doesn't take up any USB 3.0 ports
cheaper than many ...
I'd suggest also looking for new or second hand Chelsio cards (T420-CR/T520-CR for optic OM2 LC SFP+ format, or other formats available, see their website) - they are quite frequent and cheap (well, as cheap as 10G goes) as used items on EBay, and very highly recommended - both pfSense and FreeNAS projects recommend them above Intel for 10GbE networks (as ...
