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?
