Can't find a router to meet my requirements


[link to this post]
 
Hoping for some help.
I’m looking to purchase a new router.
I currently have a WNr2000 v1 attached to a BT FTTC modem. The internal network has both wired and wireless, With various devices attached, number of PC and laptops, games consoles, smart phones, Blu-ray player , TV and cctv cameras.
I am looking for some fairly standard functionality. i.e.
PPOE
DDNS (Dymdns.org)
Wpa2
4 lan ports
Ethernet wan port
Dhcp server
IP allocations via MAC
SPI firewall
Ability to configure inbound connections

In addition I need
IPv6
1Gb lan ports
Usb port for hard drive connection
NAS functionality
DNLA server

Most importantly I have a son who like surfing the internet on the TV or Blue ray player, So I want to have the ability to apply parental controls to selected devices ONLY, and the ability to easily lift these when I want may be via a web page on the router and scheduling. Potentially parental filters could be provided by OpenDNS (The netgear offering) but by ISPs DNS for the devices which my son can’t access
I am also getting really annoyed with a lot of routers which allows either an IP or service blocked but not the ability to block a specific service on a specific IP. So I would like this functionality back.

I may in the future also require the ability to have a separate network which can access specific hosts for specific services, so multiple networks would be good or vlans.


I have looked at the Netgear WNDR 4500, and LinksysE4200 v2 but neither of these quite meets my requirementsa

Thank in advance
Andrew

I can only think of Draytek series routers...

Indeed. No current IPv6 support on most though, but supposedly IPv6 support will come eventually through for some of the recent ones.

Have a look at the BT 2wire2701 with an attached Gbit switch. Will not do IP6 but that is a problem with a lot of routers

It has IP by MAC, parental controls for content or time on each connected device.
