I'm beginning to think my 20th Century Linksys router should be replaced.

Virgin cable coming in on co-ax.

There's a Draytek with WAN and wireless and ADSL for under Â200 that looks
plausible ...?

Ideally I'd like something that can have its OS reflashed with Linux of

Why not see if it will take OpenWRT ?

Failing that any old Linux box with 2 Ethernet ports will do you. I use an MiniITX Intel Atom board and a plug-in 4-port Ethernet card for the various LANs in my home/office running Debian.
