Installing Broadband

Can anybody please advise me of the installation order of Antivirus and Firewall Software and the Sagem 800 fast Modem Software installation. I think I read somewhere that you should install the Modem first and then install your security software. If this is correct are there any security concerns regarding the installation of the modem without having any securiy installed. Thanks for any advice.

I don't think there's any real problem whichever order you choose. The only computers I've installed BB on already had AV and firewall for the dial-up modems they had, on the other hand as long as you don't visit any dodgy sites or open email attachments, a few minutes of unprotected Internet access is hardly likely to result in an infection.
