Opendns, as Lanny suggested, works as they advertise. Its not very 
granular though.

I've also been using Untangle (untangle.com) and just love it. Its FLOSS 
with commercial add-ons; but I think the straight FLOSS capabilities are 
great without the fee-based extras.

Its a linux-based router distro. Capable of full NAT routing or as a 
transparent bridge, you just build up a beige box with 2 NICs and put 
this baby in between the PCs and the internet.

Its got a great UI, and is really flexible.

Depending on what you were hoping for/envisioning it could be a great fit.
