Perhaps a tad bit aggressive statement, but I would recommend against
m0n0wall, as it has not been updated in more than a year now.
Projects like PFSense  are maintained actively  and they offer
professional support, if needed.
Also, OpenBSD [3,4] makes a great platform for networking (and
learning! :-) and it comes with everything you need to get IPv6 up and
running in your LAN, right in the base system (pf, radvd, DNS, ntp,
BGP, MPLS, OSPF et cetera). </advocacy of a happy user>
Have a nice day everyone,
