Add a 2nd NIC (and wireless card) into your oldest/slowest
(expandable) Linux box and make that into your firewalling router.
(You might have to buy a $50 desktop, though, and make that the router.)

Or if that's not physically possible or maybe too noisy, buy any one
of a number of supporters wifi routers and upgrade it to a fully
functional Linux system.
