Netgear Router security issues?

Hi, I use a Netgear RP614v2 to share my broadband connection between my PC and Xbox Live. The router has a built in firewall and my pc is running Zonealarm Pro and Norton Internet Security 2004. When I run any security tests ie; trojan scan, port scan, Symantec online security scan, it shows up that my connection is open to attack from hackers and there are several open ports!!!!!!!!!! If I connect directly to my cable modem the same scans all show that my connection is safe and stealthed! Is there a valid security issue here or is it just me being paranoid?
Any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated.
