Wired router and web filtering

Specs: Macintosh
I am looking for a router that will allow me to do web filtering but I do not want or need the wireless router. Which wired router will give me the best performance with web filtering that will not break the bank.

You can make your own if you want. Either a free virtual machine on your system can do that. See things like untangle linux and a few others.

You can get a cheap atom system to do that also, run untangle linux or other firewall.

The only good hardware ones tend to cost a bit of money. They tend to be faster and in some cases offer free updates or such.

None of them work very well if they aren't set up properly.

A Pit Bull is like a gun you can pet. And there is no safety on it.

If your router or switch supports port mirroring, you can deploy an internet filtering program(ie: WFilter, websense) on the mirroring port to filter websites and other internet activities.

My current router is the Netscreen 5XT and it supports Websense filtering but I would like to use OpenDNS as my filter because it is free. I have changed the DNS requirement in my router to the appropriate IP addresses but it not working. It is probably because it is a policy based router and I think I need to do some additional modifications before it will work. I am just not sure what I need to do at this point.
