Hi Glock

If I understood correctly you have a server at home and your problem is that you do not have enought bandwidth since you are target with a DDOS attack.

Are you sure that it is a DDOS attack?

Suppose that you have a https, it is normal that thousand of IP are asking for pages that you do not have in order to find a specific software with a possible bug.

Therefore, at your level you can put a block in your router firewall, but the traffic is still there, you can turn off the modem for hours or a day in order to have a new IP but if you run a server they will get the new ip eventually.

The way to protect against a DDOS attach depende from the attach, can be as easy to drop ICMP or something else.

The providers do not offer this kind of problems since you have a home usage internet.

Hi

If you run a server you need to implement your ddos protection

For example
You have a HTTP server, someone will request 1000 pages, the must compute intense, your server will have some problem. Therefore, you need to adjust your firewall and the server to limit this

All this to tell you that the router alone cannot do much
