depends on the type of user.

mono has a state table of 30,000 sessions. Should be enough but some
p2p applications generate a huge number of sessions which would mess
up your internet access.

take a look at pfsense.com (its a fork of mono targetted at more
powerful machines) which allows you to change the size of the state
