Suggestions for bridging firewall?

Hi,

We're looking for a (stateful) bridging firewall to sit on the 100Mb/s
connection between our department and the rest of campus, which is also
our link out to the open internet.  Normally, our 15-min traffic
average on this connection is less than a few Mb/s, but occasionally we'll
burst up to 60Mb or so.  Does anyone have any recommendations for
solid, easy-to-use products?

I have played around with a Linux box and iptables, but maybe a
commercial appliance would be easier to use and more feature-ful.  Any
insight would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Pete
