I'm using a Netgear DG824M Ethernet Wireless router.....thingy....and I'm wondering is it worth installing a software firewall?

I get a perfect "Stealth" rating at ShieldsUp as it stands so shall I just carry on as am I?

Most routers have a built-in firewall, which is generally better than any software offering. It seems likely as you have a "Stealth" rating, that is exactly what you have got and if it were me, I would take no further action.
