Pfsense Vs Untangle?

I have been looking for a new project lately and I have been looking a lot at making my own router with untangle, though recently I stumbled upon pfSense and I was curious, which should I do? Does anyone have much experience with the two they would like to share? I have seen untangle in action and I like the gui and everything but pfSense being a new discovery for me makes me curious. Which would be more secure for a home network running 2 desktops-wired 1 laptop (wireless) 1 netbook (wireless) and 2 console systems (wireless). I should note I live in a single story home made of cinder blocks and the systems are scattered between 3 different rooms so you can imagine the wireless signal isn't the strongest thing in the world. Thanks for any suggestions in advance.

Thanks for the quick replys, I will check them all out but I'd like to add I am looking for mostly something I can use to replace my wireless linksys wrt54g router with which would be very secure and add alot of functionality with different settings such as tracking packets coming in and out of my network. Currently my router randomly disconnects my wireless connected laptops and I'm hoping this may be a little more stable but also more secure. Thanks again

Whatever you go with you may want to set up Xplico as its a really slick, good looking way of seeing what people are doing on the network.
