    I prefer pfsense. It's free and very easy to set up. It's comes with VPN and RRD graphs ootb and you can quickly install extra packages such as Dansguardian from the web interface.

    The Pi comes with one Ethernet jack. For the second interface, you can add a wifi connection easily with a USB device like this. For a second Ethernet connection, you'll need a USB to Ethernet adapter as Charles suggests.

    I wonder, though, if your needs could not be met with a good commercial router that runs dd-wrt or Tomato, two Linux derivatives designed for routers. Buffalo makes routers that come with dd-wrt as the stock firmware.

    That would be one of my thoughts, too.

    I've got DD-WRT running off a DIR-615, but it's limited to the micro build as the memory and flash space available is quite low. I've heard those buffalo routers are pretty nice with DD-WRT, but I've seen no reason to replace the one I have now.
