Hi
This is probably a daft question from a bit of a novice but I am thinking of buying an ADSL/router which has it's own hardware firewall. Does this type of firewall have to be updated like a software firewall and will I need to pay a yearly renewal subscription as with my software firewall.

regards

No. Your router firewall is only updated when the manufacturer releases what is called a firmware upgrade, which may include various changes to the router setup.
