This does not meet one of his requirements:
"There is currently no IPv6 support available in stable releases"
It has been a long time since I've used m0n0wall, but it was overall a
pleasant expereince. I know it does have IPv6 support, but I don't know
how good it is. The fact that the last update on
http://m0n0.ch/wall/changelog.php was a year and a half ago doesn't fill
me with warm fuzzies though.
OpenWRT has served me well, but I also don't believe in web GUIs for
such purposes, so adjust your expectations accordingly :)
