Perhaps a Cisco PIX 501 or 506 would be a good purchase for the firewall portion.

Subject: Need secure firewall for SOHO

To the group,

I have a colleague who has a SOHO network using ADSL.  He is using a standard Linksys router for his firewall, but has 
reached a limit in the number of ports it can open and manage.  I don't have one on hand to check, but evidently the 
Linksys only has ten slots to configure ports to be opened and he needs 12-15 or so.  

Without a lot of money he wants to get a different firewall up and running that has more ports that it can manage.  
I suggested the free version of zone alarm as the only free one I'm aware of; however it turns out that he wrote his 
thesis on how you can crack zone alarm.

Looking for another much more secure solution?

Thanks,

Jim,
