I don't know if your requirement for an Atom CPU is absolute, or you're 
just looking for a low power solution, but if it's the latter and 
100Mb/s networking is fast enough, I use one of these

for my pfSense firewall. Three network interfaces so you have a DMZ, 
plus a hardware crypto accelerator for VPNs. Total power consumption 
measured at 5W. The alix2d2 is the 2 network port version.
