After some recent issues which I'm still not completely convinced my internet connection 
is 100% good has left me wanting to know is using a Linux Router the best way to go.
ie as far as I can see I have two basic options.

1. Linux router, which also run MythTV and firewall and a few other background scripts (eg 
Solar power data collection etc..)
2. Appliance Router (eg Billion VOIP router/ Wifi access point

So just wonder is there a big reason why I should use my Fedora box instead of a dedicated 

Note I found out that my Billion router is definitely not upto some attacks but they seem 
to be rare .
