Best way to check and see if you are behind something is to check your IP, if it is an internal one 192.xxx.x.x then you dont need zonealarm

if it is an external one, then get a cheap router

BTW...AVG been using for years and love it
Thats good advice I think I'll look into that. So your saying a router can replace a firewall?

I use norton internet security AV/Firewall and like it but it does slow your system down a little. Norton's AV is ranked only a little lower than NOD Kap etc in terms of security.

Everybody hates on Symantec



Although NOD is a great AV if thats all you need.

a router physically separates your ports from the outside world.

With your ports being separated people cant find them when sniffing.

edit: not claiming to be a securtiy guru...this is just what a buddy of mine...who is, told me. So I deleted ZA and havent had any problems since.

You actually want both software & hardware. I like to know when applications try to get out and make the decision myself whether to allow them.

I also have a lot of applications and cant imagine configuring them all in the routers firewall especially for home use. Everytime you installed an app and uninstalled it you would have to open and close the ports manually in the router. Although some router/firewalls support UPnP which along with certain apps setup temporary rules.

Most routers nowadays have some form of firewall software in them although my linksys router isnt = to my pixx firewall

Anyways you want layers. Onions have layers

He's absolutely right!

Also try Agnitum Outpost Firewall. It's of my favorites and it's completely packed with "important" security features. Anything from low and high knowledge.
