Use a hardware firewall or setup a old second hand PC as a firewall and run something like IPCop or Smoothwall on it.

I found a "Visara MTX" thinclient at a local computer show. It used a Disk-on-Chip running QNX2.0.
The machine is tiny, about the size of a phonebook directory, has no fans installed, no hard-drive, no floppys. Has a Cyrix 233Mhz o/c to 300mhz CPU.

I tapped into and soldered a connection to the power supply, hooked in a 1GB hard drive. Mounted it onto the top of the case. I disabled the Disk-on-Chip in the bios, added some more RAM.
Added a second ISA network card (has a built-in ethernet)
Added a CD-rom and installed FreeBSD base onto the hard drive I installed. Then removed the CDrom, fired up the hard drive, and finished installing FreeBSD via FTP.
I use it for my IPFW firewall +NAT.
Cost me $30.

I've also used the same machine for a Jukebox.
