Low end pentium running whatever you knew well.

I've tried W95(custom install, minimal system) with AnalogX Proxy server
on the DSL with good results with a 486dx/66 and 16mb ram.

NT4/WS running analogX Proxy was better on the 486dx/66 FYI.

There is LRP (Linux router project) and I'm sure FreeBSD and the right
stuff works well for this too.

Most anything works but what software is mostly a case of what you
know (can buy) and and configure. NAT/Router/Bridge/proxy/firewall
things do not that seem all that cpu intensive.
