    A router only stops incoming protocols, a software stops outbound, i suggest tiny personal firewall 2.0, it's free and fast.
    Would this have to run on each machine or as a dedicated firewall box?
    Sig? What sig?

      Not exactly accurate, considering most routers have switches instead of hubs built-in, and cost around $30-40.

      Linksys sucks, Netgear has been great to me. Running a dedicated firewall is a pain and it would be easier to spend US $30 for a Netgear router. My FM114P was around $30-40 on ebay. xe.com for conversion.

        Linksys sucks and yet their routers are made by the same company that powers almost every primary network provider and are considered the best in the world.... Cisco. Go Figure.

          They just bought them recently, and the routers that typically are still on the shelves are still the same ones that Linksys made before. Until I can get my hands on a router that Linksys made at least under the supervision of Cisco, THEN I will make a new determination.

            They have always used Cisco components in their routers. At least since I have been using them which was 1999 on.

            Have never had a problem with them. I tend not to go with companies that aren't recommended by professionals which includes Netgear. In fact the only place that sells them locally is Bestbuy. Not a single network installer or small computer shop sells Netgear products in my area.

              Then I wish Linksys would make their routers look less "Fischer Price" like. :P

              I really must have gotten a crap router that misrepresented them then.
