I thank all of you for the response.  I have read the various
recommendations and have printed them out for reference.

Meanwhile -- because my need is immediate -- I chose to go with the
IPCop system, which is a branch of SmoothWall GPL, but now appears to
have advanced beyond SmoothWall.  IPCop version 2 is very easy to
install and get running, using the default rules.

So now that I have running a replacement for the failed D-Link
DIR-615, I have the leisure to study and consider other approaches.
