I know next to nothing about routers and their firewall properties. For this reason I am asking for your friendly advice.
So far I have used ZoneAlarm. It seems to have worked well. Unfortunately it is no longer being updated for my OS, Win2k.
A friend of mine gave me a Robotics 8054 router. I under- stand that this device acts as a firewall. I do not intend to connect a number of PCs to it, just the PC I use for the internet and I intend to use a cable.
Question: how good is the security with this router? Is it better than with ZoneAlarm? What do I need to know to set it up properly in terms of its firwall function. (I do know how to connect it.)
Hopefully somebody will be able to help me. Thank you in advance.
