Firewall

Is there an efective free firewall that will protect me when connected through LAN? I have a router which is connected through my ethernet port.

I had zonealarm but this didn't work or made my computer unstable.

Is the windows (XP) firewall enough?

Thanks

Most new small routers have an inbuilt firewall. But if yours hasent then I prefer Sygate but there are others click here

Mine doesn't.

I have installed sygate and it works fine.

Thanks

No matter what I do with settings I can't get a stealth result on shields up. How can I?

Does it tell you which ports are showing open?

No ports are showing open but all are showing closed.

When I had zonealarm with my old USB modem they all showed stealth and this is what is recommended by Shields up.

How can I get the results to show all stealth again?
