The PIX does not support DHCP on its interfaces.  Something like a Nortel Instant Internet might work for you.

Control application downtime with dependency maps

Visualize the interdependencies between application components better with Applications Manager's automated application discovery and dependency mapping feature. Resolve performance issues faster by quickly isolating problematic components.

Alfaisal Netscreen 5 elite is probably one of the easiest hardware firewalls to configure in the world. It supports everything any other top rated firewall does (maximum security)..... & has a DSL pppoe dialer built right in... What more could you possibly need than that ?

I'm using Smoothwall (0.9.9) on a BT ADSL line in the UK.
If Smoothwall spooks you, don't worry, it comes in a downloadable bootable CDROM image.  If you've got some popular hardware (including the NIC) it pretty much sets itself up!
