If you plan to use NAT to connect several pcs to an internet conection and
understand what a WAN, a LAN, and an IP network is, you are done ;o)
Even if you plan to do some if forwarding is easy.
If you are planning to do VPN, Bridgeing, Filtering by ports, IPs or
networks or Traffic shapping, it requires a little more knoledge than an
"out of the box" solution, but is not impossible.

Good luck !!
