Re: ddos attack
No need old PCs - modern routers are more than fast enough - the very latest 802.11n dual bands can easily handle 750Mbps (yes, 750) routing packets. Handling a DDoS is even easier since it just involves discarding packets and they get tossed lower down in the network stack.
Even an older top end router can handle 25Mbps without a sweat.
Depends on your budget, high-end consumer router, or low-end PC Both will accompish the same, I will stand by the statement that a computer can do a lot more then a router can, but most people don't need the features.
And also consider power usage over time.
