Or download PFSENSE (which is free) and get a BSD based firewall that works out of the box, has WiFi Captive Portal, and all the security features you could want (backed by a great community support forum).

All pre-compiled, and most importantly, done by people who understand how to harden the setup, and do thorough attack and penetration tests (something most people who roll their own firewall have absolutely no idea what that means, let alone how to do it correctly).
