My friend has recommended me to buy a router for my PC would it be of any benefit to me ??

If you only have one PC and connected by Ethernet cable. The answer is NO

Would only be of benefit if you wanted to run more than one computer - ie Desktop and Laptop both sharing one broadband setup and perhaps with wireless printer too.

Thanks for that. But he is adamant that the router protects from any attacks on his PC, he was advised by our local PC world shop.

It may have a Hardware Firewall but it's going over the top just for that
