The internet connection will come from your cable modem, then to your router. From there the router will go to your computer, you can also use the router with a network card to allow for wireless internet throughout your house.

Security wise a router works like a coffee filter it doesn't just let everything in and is the best security option for any computer.

Edit: yes a hardware firewall is much better than software and please use the edit button so you don't have to post as much
