My recommendation would be to find yourself an old P3 box, 256mb ram, 4gb disk, three lan cards, and build yourself a dedicated firewall box.. I personally use pfSense, but there are many other firewall distro's available - ipcop, smoothwall etc etc...

The Mikrotik Router Operating System that you will find on the routerboards is also extremely powerful, and can do everything I have mentioned, and more....!

We we will be quite happy to assist you to set one of these up!

Use your wug routerboard to establish the pppoe connection for you -

My setup is fairly simple. If it needs to go to the wug (172.16.0.0/20), my router routes it to the Mikrotik RB, otherwise it routes it to the internet.

So the only difference between a normal internet connection private network and mine, is this:
- Router assigns IP's allocated to me on Jawug, instead of 192.168.0.x like is often used.
- Router has a static route added to route to the WUG if it's in the WUG IP range.

Seems to work fairly well.
