i,m trying to understand the manual for this product(i,m no techie and it took and age to get the thing to work).simple question...
there is an inbuilt firewall.does this mean comodo(free)is not needed?.thanks.

The firewall on your router would in theory make comodo redundant, however, these built in firewalls can be a bit hard to tame, and can block things which are legit. I have a firewall built into my adsl router / modem, but prefer a third party soloution as it gives me more instant control....guess the choice is yours, you can try it and see how it goes, can always disable it if you have problems.
