What exactly do you want to do here? Linksys routers will run DD-WRT, which is a port of linux. It is not a full OS, but it is much better than the stock firmware. If you want a full OS, you will have to use an actual PC. If you can find an old mainboard (about 2003-6), you could load the PCI slots with LAN cards and run a basic linux OS to act as a router. Give us some more info on what you want to do.
