For my 2 pennies worth, I just get hold of any cheap little router that does
as little as possible!!!!!!!!!!!
Then put a bsd firewall with squid on it and work through that. Means I can
change the router if I wish to without any thoughts that someone else is
looking after my ingress point.

The Thompson box works just fine, as long as you leave it upside down
so the hot air can escape. :-)
I use it in bridged mode, with pfsense running on one of those old
Compaq small form factor boxes. It's a very reliable set-up.
