How DNS Changer Trojans Direct Users to Threats
...Some DNS changer Trojans can alter routers' DNS settings via brute-force attacks. As a result, all systems connected to the "infected" router also become infected. Some DNS changer Trojans can also be used to set up rogue Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) servers on certain networks, which can have the same effect.

I'd disconnect the WAN side of the router, make sure nothing but the one PC is connected, use a Linux LiveCD so you're not running off the connected PC desktop to minimize potential for any damage.
I'd guess that most exploited routers merely are a gateway for bad actions, not a repository to attack connected devices.
