Another good open-source one with IPv6, Sourcefire rules support,
stateful firewall and filtering at traffic and web address level etc
is Vyatta (http://www.vyatta.org and http://www.vyatta.com).  They're
also rather nice routers if I do say so myself.

Do let us know which one you end up picking and how you go with it.

Cheers
