linksys router

I have 2 computers, networked and connected to ntl cable via a linksys router.
It all works superbly and I am really pleased with my setup.
One thing puzzles me though....How do I know that the hardware firewall is working?
With the zone alarm software one, it is possible to check, either by constant alerts, or by looking at the log, just how many possible incursions have been thwarted. How can I tell if my routers firewall is doing the job for which Im paying it?
Itis definitely enabled in the setup utility.
Thanks for any advice.

I have a linksys router, and had Sygate firewall, I did notice in the firewall logs that incoming blocked attempts decreased dramatically, there is an option with linksys routers to log traffic in and out
