Router/Firewall trusted or not

If you want to share files, then you should add as a trusted address. If you're just sharing an internet connection, then you don't need to add it.

I have a netgear router/firewall with several pc on a local network. Each pc has a software firewall as well. Does the ip address of the router go into the "trusted" zone of the software firewall or does it go into the "untrusted" zone?

Don't presume that the previous poster uses for his LAN.

Yes, I should not have assumed he/she would be using the default set of addresses assigned by a Netgear router. Thanks.
