If you don't have a reason not to get a NAT router, then you should get one and not use a MS O/S as a gateway device for the LAN and WAN, which cost about as much as ZA on a machine.

You can use ZA on each machine behind the router if you like, but some people don't do that and just go with the NAT router and a good AV.
