You could always configure a firewall, do you have a p100 or something
lying around? Slap OpenBSD on it, configure pf (all can be done in
about 2 hours) and sit back and enjoy...
This is, in my opinion, better than buying software/hardware. It is
easily upgradable and there is very active development on it. Plus all
of the options you have.
