Firewalls & Linksys USB Network Adaptors

  CPI 21:32 27 May 2003

I have 2 x newish 2.4Ghz PCs running Windows XP Home & sharing my BT Broadband connection by 2 x Linksys Wireless USB Network Adaptors. I currently have 90 day trial versions of Norton anti-virus software soon to expire. On my last PC I had used Norton Internet Security with the firewall set to cover the full IP addresses range on both PCs but I was forever having to disconnect/reconnect the adaptors on the Client PC. I want to put a firewall in place asap on my main PC - CAN ANYONE PLEASE SUGGEST A COMPATIBLE ONE (free or chargeable) and advise whether Norton is best to stop the myriad of finance/ gambling/porn emails that are sent by spammers? THANK YOU.

A firewall or AV will not stop finance/ gambling/porn emails. You could try mailwasher at click here or type spam stopper into click here.
