Any Linux distribution could do what you want. You will need to give a bit more detail before we can give a clear suggestion.

What kind of hardware are you looking to run it on? Do you want something with an easily configurable web-interface, or are you looking to simply set the box up once and let it run?

firstly thank you for your respond.

for your info, there are several Linux PCs which is one of PC will act as a router and the rest as a hosts..each PC will have two interfaces.

1. i want to know how to configure that PC to become as a router in IPv6 i know, i just need to add another NIC and configure it, after configure it, i will connect to switch/hub to make all PCs it correct?

2. I want something with an easily configurable web-interface.
