Hi all, I am looking for some firewall distribution that works with athlon xp and 1 gb of ram. I know it is difficult because most distributions dropped support for 32bit cpu. Well if someone can help me very grateful in advance. Best regards.

Any Linux distribution that still supports 32 bit should do. They all have iptables, so you can use any of them as a firewall.

Keep in mind that due to such low spec of the system that firewall can actually seriously impact the speed of your internet.

Thank you very much but I am looking for a dedicated firewall distribution.

I believe OpenWRT still has a 32bit build.

Router:  Intel Celeron N5105 (pfSense) WiFi: Zyxel NWA210AX (1.44Gbit peak at 160Mhz 2x2 MIMO, ~900Mbit at 80Mhz)

Switches: Netgear MS510TXUP, Netgear MS510TXPP, Netgear GS110EMX
ISPs: Zen Full Fibre 900 (~915Mbit) + Three 5G (~500Mbit average)
