Router & Firewall

  Sealer 21:36 03 Jun 2005

Hi, I have a Belkin 4-port cable/dsl gateway router. The router has a built in firewall, the belkin support centre says i can turn off all other firewalls! Do you think this is true or should i keep windows firewall turned on?

Well I will give my view, Windows Firewall!!!! well the least said. I use a 3Com Wireless Firewall Router Modem and I had to turn of ZoneAlarm as I was getting problems with it Now it's OK. And no need for software Firewall as the Router is a Hardware Firewall and a lot better

Thanks for that. The reason i am asking is because of networking probs.

I have not bothered with Networking as No need for it. I can connect any of my three comps all together to Router BB including a wireless laptop
