Do I need a firewall on a hardware firewall router

  Nessie 10:39 15 Jan 06

I have a belkin adsl router with hardware firewall. Do I need a firewall on the 2 PC's and laptop on the network. I have tried zonealarm free edition without success. If I need one can you suggest a good free firewall or cheap version. Cheers

You can never have too much protection against nasties. Another software firewall doesn't hurt. There are plenty of "free" versions on the web, undoubtedly other more experienced forum members will recommend them.

Hi, I don't know if you do need an additional firewall or not, but if you do try Zone Alarm from zone labs ( google it). Its free and seems to work well.

I run the XP one alongside my router one, does no harm ;-)
