Is there a reason you feel you need something like Smoothwall? A consumer grade router is perfectly fine for most applications and uses.
Well a few reasons. First of all, I have 2 WAN connections, so I want to be able to log and manage them closely. Second of all, I need a more powerful router.

I thought about doing this but I'm only going to be using a 3800+ x2 so its not going to be blazing.
