comment SPF help; My emails are still considered spam
I see a txt and a couple of A records, just no PTR record. If you do a host command on your IP, does it return your domain?

comment Switching to IPv6 implies dropping NAT. Is that a good thing?
Exactly, get a real router and you won't have to worry. SonicWall has some excellent options to provide the security you need and will support IPv6 without a problem. This option will probably offer better security and performance than what you currently have. (news.sonicwall.com/index.php?s=43&item=1022) As you can see in this article, you can also do ipv4 to ipv6 translation with sonicwall devices for those that can't handle ipv6.

comment When analyzing packets with Wireshark, is there a way to know which program is sending which packet?
You don't need one, it is just a simple method for seeing what app is sending info out to which IP address. It will of course only give you basic information, so it all depends on what level of detail you're after.

comment Juniper router dropping pings to external interface
Have you had your ISP run intrusive testing to see why the circuit keeps dropping? Are you logging errors on the WAN interface that show the alarm state when it goes down? Have you replaced all the cabling that you can concerning the bridge and your router? You need to start with some basic layer one troubleshooting at this point.
