I bought a new PC for Christmas. So I was wondering what I should do with the old one.And as I am not very statisfied with the diversity of functions that my current router provides I thought about setting up a own Linux router with my old PC.
Has anyone expierence with that and can give me some info about it? As a gamer latency is important to me. How much latency will such a router add compared to the conventional hardware routers you can buy? Which OS is recommanded to use? Is it possible to make it work with gbit lan and draft-n w-lan aswell?

Thanks in advance and best regards,
