Unless you have special requirements, it's my opinion that for most home and
small office networks the best thing to use for a router is a router.  Dlink
routers and the like are quite cheap, very easy to configure and they use less
power and generate less heat than any general purpose computer.  They also come
with a fairly decent built-in firewall, not to mention that the mere fact that
you're NAT-ing tends to add a layer of protection as well.
