Unhappy Internet Gateway Server


I desperately need some help from someone!

What I need is some information to be studied and learned by me in order to be able to create with Ubuntu Server an Internet Gateway Server.
From my ISP I get about 50 public routable IPs through DHCP. Into my LAN I need to forward this public routable IPs to machines but I want to be able to manage bandwidth and also to be able to enable or disable Internet access for every client machine. Maybe with subnets? Maybe with dchp realy?

PS: It would be nice if it would possible through DHCP!

Please, any help would meant A LOT to me!

If it HAS to be on Ubuntu, I suggest the following:

If it doesn't have to be Ubuntu, I suggest using pfsense, which is actually a BSD built specifically for use as a network appliance/firewall/router/gateway. It's really easy to set up and it just works, without fuss.

Good luck.
