Ouch!  A friend returned a new router to the vendor after
encountering such a bad proprietary interface.

An elegant solution is to assemble a Linux router based
on a salvaged desktop or laptop machine.

I always found setting up an OpenBSD router much easier IMHO and documentation is excellent.

For a basic firewall, m0n0wall is quick and about as easy as they come. Runs on a variety of hardware, including an ordinary PC with two NICs. It's FreeBSD based.
