I like sisela for its ease of use, simplicity, that it supports wifi so
easily, that it auto detects the networking hardware, and that it uses a
2.4 kernel with iptables - so many others use ip chains.
The only thing that I havent been successful in is getting it to control
my ppoe adsl connection...
