Router firewall help please!!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I just bought this router: TP-LINK TL-WR841ND Wireless N300 Home Router. Since it is fairly cheap, I am not sure if its hardware firewall is good enough for protection if paired with Norton Internet Security firewall? The specification listed that it has IP, MAC, and URL filtering but I did not see any mentioned about firewall at all.

I am just finished setting up the internet last week and have been using the modem that Charter gave me since then. Until I found out that it doesn't have hardware firewall built in then I ordered that router.

What worried me is that during thoes couple days I have used my credit and debit card to buy stuffs online (Newegg, Amazon). All the transactions are being done on my crappy Acer laptop which runs Chromebook OS. I am pretty sure it does not have any internet security software except for Google Protection software. It must be the easiest thing to hack. Some transactions were paid through Paypal but most were not. I have changed all the passwords and check my bank account constantly every 2 hours or so because I am not sure if my bank information got hacked or any worse thing may happen.

I am like living on fire now and not sure what else can I do?

Wow..... A little paranoid:o? Trust me a having all the firewalls in the world aren't going to help protect your private information. Chromebook OS actually really good. Seriously, TRY to get a virus on it, I bet you can't .... this is all i have to say smile.gif
