I would suggest to add gShield to the packages. For those who don't know gShield: It's an excellent shell script of an progressive firewall (iptables).

It's easy to setup and configure. Here's the URL to the hp of gShield:

Best Regards,
Tealc


P.s.: I also recommend adding ADSL support ASAP, it's really a quirk to get rp_pppoe working with the installation system.

One small, pedantic side-note. ADSL != PPPoE. It is up to the ISP how they wish to connect their users. Nothing says they must use PPPoE.

You should try to build an ebuild for yourself then submit it to the developers.
