Firewall?

I'm actually not sure if my connection is behind a reliable firewall or not?!

I have a Netgear DG834G which I presumed had a built in firewall. I have Windows Firewall within Win 7 enabled, but is it a proper one?

From tomorrow I'll be with BT using a Home Hub 3. Do I need to install a firewall??

Sorry, bit clueless when it comes to this. Cheers.

Re: Firewall?

Hi.

The DG834G does have an inbuilt firewall just like the HH3, but for safety you should use a software firewall as well.

 

Windows inbuilt firewall or most other software firewalls are good enough, or maybe try a security suite, like BT's Net protect Plus, Microsoft security essentials. Thats just 2, but thewre are many out there, some free, some paid for.
