Actually, it's a good job for any computer that's running all the time.
My firewall/router is an old i586 computer running openSUSE 11.4.
That's where ai run Dnscache, along with some other services.

Any old box is plenty fast to serve as a firewall/router/dhcpd/bind server.

By implication, those would be trivial additional load to any system that's already running 24/7, which wouldn't require additional oxidation of dead dinosaurs or radioactive waste to keep another older, probably less efficient, PS, CPU & RAM running, and eat another switch port and cable.

You can literally create
your firewall/router/dhcpd/bind server out of the spare parts you have laying
around.

I have lots of parts already assembled into well over a dozen complete working PCs at 850MHz or less, just waiting for some use to be put to besides out-of-support software, roach, dust and spider web housing.
