m0n0wall or pfSense would both do the trick.

Hi,
i am fan of m0n0wall and sometimes of pfSense, but in this scenario,
they are a wrong solution. Both have no possibility of building groups
of IPs, so you have to build for every allowed IP and user a complete
rule. A PIX 515 could do the job, but can't handle static entries in the
DHCP-Server. One possible solution could be a Proxy (Squid) with
authentication and ACLs.
